    An escaped herd of bison is roaming free in rural upstate New York, grazing in hay fields as the owner works with state police and the Department of Environmental Conservation on a roundup plan.

    State police say Monday that about 75 bison escaped last week from a farm in Sharon Springs, 45 miles west of Albany. Police are asking anyone who spots them to call troopers or Brian Grubb, owner of the animals.

    The bison aren't considered a danger to the public in the region of farms and state forest land. But police say people shouldn't approach the animals because they're unpredictable.
