SHARON SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - The bison are no longer roaming.           

An upstate New York rancher who lost about 100 bison last month says he believes the last stragglers are back in their pen.

Rancher Brian Grubb posted a short Facebook clip of two bison running back into their pen Tuesday. Grubb tells the Post-Standard of Syracuse he is "pretty confident" that his entire herd has now rejoined the fold.           

Grubb says a bull knocked over a gate at his ranch in Sharon Springs, 45 miles (72 kilometers) west of Albany, on July 23. The whole herd escaped and caused mayhem by eating neighbors' hay.           

Grubb used a combination of sweet treats and tranquilizer guns to get the animals back to his ranch. He says the bison that escaped were worth about $250,000.
