Just imagine it for a second. You're sitting there in your car, waiting at a red light, when all of a sudden you look to your left and there's a giant herd of animals trudging your way. Twenty years ago, you might pound the gas pedal and get out of dodge as quick as possible. But today? Pull that cell phone out and let's make a viral video!

Shared on Twitter by NewsProJoe, the short video shows what many residents of Laconia, New Hampshire witnessed on Tuesday afternoon. A herd of bison, presumably escaped from a nearby farm, making their way across the "plains" of side streets and front yards.

So be careful out there in the Wild West of New Hampshire, as the bison roam free.
