"The Monster of Scavenger Crossing" is the third segment of the twelfth episode of The Lone Ranger. It originally aired on CBS on January 7, 1967.
Out in a part of a river called Scavenger Crossing, a monster has reportedly been attacking and damaging ships in the night. And the very next morning after the attack, the ship's cargo is salvaged by river pirate Captain Salvage and his crew of cutthroats. The authorities cannot do anything about it, seeing as that it is legal for a damaged ship, and not a sunken ship, to be looted for salvage. However, neither the pirates or the monster have planned on The Lone Ranger stepping in.
