Why was a meeting called about Buck? What do you think Thorton would have done if it had been decided that Buck must be killed?

Buck gets a chance to prove his love when John Thornton interferes in a bar fight between "Black" Burton and a tenderfoot. Buck nearly kills the instigator. An impromptu meeting is called to decide what to do with Buck but the miners rule that Buck was merely trying to defend his master. I don't think Thornton would have let them hurt Buck anyway. Buck and Thornton's bond only grew stronger because of the attack.
