Where have all the cowboys gone? Apparently to the local Walmart parking lot in Eagle Point, Oregon, where last week one of them intercepted a robbery-in-progress with his lasso and saved the day (as cowboys are wont to do).

Robert Borba, a cattle rancher, family man, and champion bull rider, was picking up some dog food when he heard a woman screaming that someone had stolen her bike.

“I grabbed Old Grey out of the trailer and went for him,” Borba said.

A local landscaper snapped pictures of the hero, who mounted up and roped the would-be thief, Victorino Arellano-Sanchez, by the ankles. “I just rode off like I would if I roped a cow or something,” said the soft-spoken Borba.

“Poor gal’s bike could have been her only transportation.”
