    A man allegedly attempting to steal a bike in front of a Walmart in Southern Oregon was foiled by a man on a horse Friday morning when the mounted rider lassoed the would-be thief and kept him roped up until police arrived, officials said.

    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.



    The man, whose identity was not immediately released, was booked on suspicion of theft, Adams said.

    I should've been a Cowboy
    I should've learned to rope and ride
    Wearing my six-shooter riding my pony on a cattle drive
    Stealing the young girl's hearts
    Just like Gene and Roy
    Singing those campfire songs
    I should've been a cowboy
