Someone give that ram a Tui!
The Herald reports:
A Nelson trailbike rider has become an internet sensation after posting a video showing him being attacked by an angry ram.
Marty Todd’s YouTube video, in which the surly ram known as Rambro prevents him from riding up a dirt track, has gone viral after being featured on CNN and Britain’s Daily Mail website.
“I was riding my trailbike up a hill when I came across this grumpy old ram with huge horns,” Mr Todd said. “It charged my bike then started attacking me, [he’s a] surprisingly powerful animal.”
Mr Todd said he couldn’t turn his trailbike around as he was on a steep hill and if he did the ram would have charged him side-on, which could have broken his leg
“This guy is known for his aggression and attacks for no reason, he’s even attacked a group of pig-hunting dogs. In the end I had to pick up a branch and wave it in front of him, he didn’t like the noise and backed off enough for me to make my escape.”
Maybe he needs to ride with a shotgun!
