Angry Ram Takes On Dirt Bike, Wins (VIDEO)

Evidently, not all rams are the stuff of petting zoos. According to this video, some of them will really put those horns to good use, no matter how powerful of a machine they're up against.

This footage of a New Zealand motorcyclist fending off an aggressive ram after it knocked him off his bike was uploaded to YouTube last month by user Buddhanz1, who says the fearless animal also attacked a pack 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," he wrote.

According to the University of Illinois, rams should be left alone and never teased or taunted.
