    Somewhere near Pietermaritzburg

    Yikes. Red Hartebeest vs. mountain bike. Ouch!

    If it's a hoax, it's a good one.

    Thanks,

    And that right there is why I don't go mountain biking on the savanna.

    Friend of my father's got taken out and nearly killed by a deer within city limits, on his road bicycle, during his morning ride, badly hurt too, knocked out cold in a ditch for a few hours before someone came by and called an ambulance, busted hip, pelvis, arm and several ribs, punctured lung too.

    I really doubt that was faked, if it was, wow, better than most CG stuff you see in Hollyweird

    About the time Bill was posting the video, I was watching the same footage on the local 10:00 NBC news. They said that the clobbered rider was eventually taken to the hospital, but was essentially unhurt.

    Whew!
