Horse-Mounted Cowboy Lassos Bike Thief

This is just one of those things that you don’t expect to see any more. On Friday, a cowboy on a horse lassoed a bike thief in a Walmart parking lot and then held him for police.

Kale Williams with The Oregonian/OregonLive reports:

The incident unfolded around 10:30 a.m. in front of the Walmart in Eagle Point, about 12 miles northeast of Medford, said Officer Chris Adams, a spokesman for the local police department.

A man tried to grab a mountain bike off the rack in front of the store, Adams said, in plain view of the bicycle’s owner.

The woman who owned the bike gave chase, as did several other bystanders including a man on horseback who ran the thief down, snared him with a lasso and kept him at bay until police arrived, Adams said.

You, sir, have true grit.
