VIDEO: Angry Nelson ram attacks motorbike and rider
A video made by a Nelson trail biker has received attention around the world.
The video, shot by Marty Todd, shows his confrontation with an angry ram - the animal seeming to apply the phrase "ye shall not pass" with extreme vigor.
Mr Todd told APNZ "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, surprisingly powerful animal."
He told how the animal is known locally and once attacked a pack of pig hunting dogs.
Since appearing on YouTube, the video has been featured on international news websites such as CNN and The Daily Mail.
