Proving, once and for all, that a ram is a better investment than a quadcopter.

Up next: a drone that pulls your cat's tail and attempts to ride your dog so your children don't have to.

Well done, ram.

Christ what an asshole (the pilot, not the ram)! Why harass the ram, who was just innocently rambling around, anyway?

Apparently this is a feral ram, rather than a wild one, but c'mon, don't fuck with animals that aren't fucking with you.

This is one of the few youtube videos I've seen where it was fun to read the comments:


What kind of sheep was this? If its a big horn sheep I would pull this video. It could just bring unwanted attention. Those animals are pretty protected. I cant tell if its a native sheep or wild domesticated.

|He's an Arapawa, I let him loose in my forest when the farmer was going to kill him for being too agressive... so all the animal rights trolls can suck it. I saved his ass 

you own a forest O___O

YOUR forest? Get over yourself pompous ass. 

this is my swamp.

|I planted the trees, I own the land, what should I call it genius?

dont be too angry. if you are angry for 1 second for every idiot on internet, you will need to live forever.

Rambro doesn't need protection, he is capable of protecting himself.

"I was looking for the angry ram and when I found him I made him angry and then when I found him again I made him angry and now I am angry at the angry YouTube comments."

"I know, let's annoy the already-established-as-aggressive animal that has two hell-prong appendages growing out of its head."

Speaking as a guy who got mauled by a wild boar and has seen most of my own tibias, I would like to nominate this quadcopter pilot for president of the Fucking Idiot Club.

Is a GoPro video helmet standard issue for piloting video quadcopter?

That's so the drone can see your face.

Where's the video where a second guy comes to retrieve both the quadcopter and the seriously injured pilot? Or did they go straight to the Blackhawk helicopter?

I don't know why people are acting like this unfair to the ram. That ram finds pleasure in exactly three things: boning lady sheep, eating and smashing things with his head. Maybe even not in that order. That qualifies as a very exciting afternoon for a ram.

Just innocently eating grass when a copter lands right in front of him. no wonder the ram got pissed off.

The last few seconds are kind of Blair Witch-y, what with the fallen, silent camera.

This story is old.

I've already tried annoying the dogs with a quadrocopter thing while we were out at a cabin . They looked at it, looked at me, and sighed.

Once there was a silly old drone
Just couldn't leave his sheep all alone
No-one could condone that drone's tone
He kept buzzin' that that roan*

'Cause he had HIIIIIGH hopes
He had HIIIII-I-I-I-I-IIGH hopes
He had high apple pie in the SKYYYYYYY hopes

So next time you're hasslin'
'Stead of assholin'
Just remember that ram:
Oops, there goes another quad copter --
Oops, there goes another quad copter --
Oops, there goes another quad copter --
DAMN!

Yeah, if he were harassing wildlife it'd be a different matter. But this is a bored domesticated ram the guy let live on his property (assuming the comments are accurate), and I'll bet bringing down a drone and getting all up in a guy's face counts as the best day this ram has had in a long time.

When a copter flies right up to your face,
would you turn your head and cry "What a disgrace!"
No!
I get mad, I get mad, I get mad...
it ain't bad to get mad

Apparently, he didn't mean to fuck with the ram:

+SuperJourneyer lol I wasn't flying that low on purpose, it was quite gusty & the quad was getting blown all over the place
also owning a forest would be cool
posted by pmv at 7:40 PM on September 3


What I also love about the youtube comments is the rich context.

Dude owns the forest he is dicking around in with his drone and he set the ram loose there to chill. He knows that ram. That ram was a known quantity to him. Hence a certain easy familiarity, down to the "Slow down, boy" and the edging him off with a stick.

Ownership of the ram has yet to be established. By the ram.
