Earlier today, residents witnessed a heavy police presence just south of Airdrie along the QEII.

Turns out local RCMP took part in their own stampede festivity as they were helping a local rancher wrangle a bull that got out of its pen next to the QE2 highway.

RCMP had side roads blocked off by the weigh scales just south of Airdrie and were in the ditches along the northbound lanes.

The bull has now been wrangled and is back home. 

The scene is now clear.
