Their bodies are ver3 heavy, and on the ground the bird is cluinsy. It can not rise for flight without run ning rapidly forward fifty yards or so to give it necessary momentum, espe cially if it is gorged with food, which it always will be if food can be obtained. As a consequence, every condor that alighted in one of these inclosures was as much a prisoner as if he were chained down to the ground, and the sportsman kept him there to serve his pleasure. When he wanted to ride after a condor the owner of the pen, generally with a friend or two similarly equipped, mounted a fleet horse, fastened his lariat to the saddle, and rode to the in closure. An attendant opened the gate of the prison and let out a condor for each huntsman. The condors at liberty, they at once started at the top of thrir speed to take...
