On a bus tour of the West, Danny and Rex spot a cattle stampede. Rex turns the leader and saves the herd. The rancher is grateful, but a panther spooked the herd. Rex takes off tracking. He falls into quicksand, but pulls out with a dangling branch. He spills an avalanche on the panther, then pulls it to safety - and it licks Rex! When lightning stampedes the herd, the panther even helps. A newspaper ad for a "lost panther" brings the owner, who raised the cat from a kitten. And Rex's reward is - his very own panther kitten!
