    This is practically my old back yard in my hometown. Check the photos. Stampede!

    Police dispatched more than a dozen cruisers and one helicopter. They shut down roads, and state highway workers closed a Beltway ramp.

    All to round up a herd of American bison disrupting rush hour and roaming through the upscale neighborhoods of Baltimore County's Greenspring Valley.

    Then -- with the nine beasts corralled within the fence of a condo complex's tennis court -- the real work began.

    You try coaxing thousands of pounds of agitated animal brawn into a trailer.

    "Hectic and smelly," said Larry Plimack, a property manager who joined with police to help capture the bison. It seemed that no one woke up Tuesday expecting to confront a challenge straight out of a Western movie.

    The bison made their escape early Tuesday from a farm off Greenspring Valley Road.

    Their owner, longtime demolition contractor Gerald "Buzz" Berg, said he was settling down to breakfast when a neighbor knocked on his door at 7 a.m. and told him the animals were on the loose. Berg said he has been raising the animals -- commonly, if not precisely, referred to by many as buffalo -- for about 10 years on his 40-acre farm, mainly for meat.

    He said he wasn't sure how they got out.
