Colorado Citizen, November 16, 1876, January 4, 1877. One story stemming from this period has it that a cattle rustler who was caught butchering a cow was murdered and sewn up inside the cow's carcass. The story has been repeated so often that it probably bears at least a kernel of truth (see Horton Foote, Farewell (New York: Scribner, 1999), p. 159, for a printed version of the story).
