William Lee III and Jack in Tombstone
Some of our guests leaving for the Grand Canyon on their way to race in California
They will overnight at the canyon tonight and tomorrow will be involved in a first.......... The rangers are going to take them and their burros down into the canyon. A lot of people know about the mules that people ride down into the canyon, but as far as we know this is the first time for burros going into the canyon since 1979 when Cleveland Amory was responsible for moving 580 burros out of the canyon the park service had marked for destruction. Most of them were taken out in slings underneath helicopters and were the beginning of Black Beauty Ranch in Texas which is now ran by The Fund for Animals.
