Biker Knocked Down by Buck (Video)

It’s hard to say exactly why this buck took down a mountain biker, but it clearly did, and with force. Perhaps it acted aggressively because is was defending its territory. The incident took place in South Africa and the animal is a red hartebeest.

That buck was the noise enforcer for the area, and the biker was just making too much noise for a wildlife area! ;-)
