Video: Angry ram attacks bike rider in New Zealand

Updated: 



A trail bike rider in New Zealand captured the moment he got attacked by an angry ram that charged at him and sent him flying off his vehicle.

He was travelling along a dirt road in Nelson, New Zealand, when he encountered the 'ram-bunctious' animal.

The ram can be seen head butting the bike, causing the man to fall off. He then has to wrestle the animal before he can make his escape.

The YouTube description read: "I was riding my trail bike up a hill when I came across this grumpy old ram with huge horns. It charged my bike then started attacking me, a surprisingly powerful animal.

"I couldn't turn my bike around as I was on a steep hill and if I did he would have charged me side on which could have broken my 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."
