The Sheep and Cattle Wars were a series of armed conflicts in the Western United States which were fought between sheepmen and cattlemen over grazing rights. The fighting between Colorado and Wyoming was especially violent. The Colorado cattlemen did not want to share their pastures with the sheepherders, who were crossing into the state from southern Wyoming. There were about twenty-four attacks and at least six deaths between 1879 and 1909 in Wyoming. William Craig (the Hermosilla Estate), PT Barnum and David W. Sherman sold their ranches to the Colorado Cattle Company in 1878 for $320,000. By 1881, it had 30,000 head of cattle. Many of the investors were from Bridgeport, Connecticut. The enterprise was not successful and in 1880, the company was in court in foreclosure proceeding. () State: Colorado City: Date: 1878
