Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

At a sheep camp near Mt. Turnbull, Chief Bylas was visiting the sheepherder camp when one of his men spotted Geronimo and his men approaching the camp.

Immediately Chief Bylas instructed his men to spread out and not to group in one spot because they were outnumbered so the men took up positions. When Geronimo and his men arrived and dismounted, he announced that his men were hungry and demanded to be fed.

The sheepherder responded they didn’t have enough to feed his group of men.

But Geronimo was looking at the sheepherder horses and selected a young pony, the sheepherder protested that the pony belongs to someone, but Geronimo had the pony shot and had the pony butchered.
