Bull fighters or Matadors are now passe! The latest Youtube Buzz is Marty Todd, a New Zealand dirt bike rider who was rammed (literally!) off the trailbike on a steep hill (talk about location!) and then repeatedly rammed until he had no choice but to take the Ram with huge horns into his own hands! And what’s more… the rame (err..name) of the ram is Rambro. The ram or sheep kept hitting Marty Todd, and he had to actually wrestle in the mud with the ferocious animal. Finally though, he ran off on his trailbike at top speed!
I’ve seen videos of aggressive rams butting their heads viciously, but this one takes the prize any day! Rambro, the Arapawa breed sheep has apparently made quite the reputation for himself, attacking people and pig hunting dogs alike. When the sheep’s owner couldn’t control it anymore, it was let loose on the Nelson, New Zealand plantation. In a move quite opposite to the Matadors of Spain and elsewhere, right out of a bullfighting scene Marty Todd waved a branch and made his escape.
This kind of a mud fight seldom happens since he is on guard when Rambro is around, so fortunately for us Todd’s helmet cam recorded the whole thing, so here’s the hilarious video which already went viral on Youtube:
