A berserk goat has ambushed and attacked a bushwalker, looking on nonchalantly as its humiliated victim was put onto a stretcher by paramedics in a ‘bizarre’ incident.
The man, in his 60s, obtained a knee injury when he was rammed by the chunky brown goat in the lower Blue Mountains in New South Wales on Tuesday morning.
The angry goat showed he wasn’t kidding, staring intently as the wounded bush-walker was placed on a stretcher.

The incident was ‘one of the more bizarre’ animal jobs paramedics have attended, NSW Ambulance Inspector David Patterson told 7NEWS.
‘These types of jobs can be quite challenging for paramedics and other emergency services, especially with the possibility of an angry animal lurking in the area,’ he said.
The paramedics attending didn’t seem afraid of the assailant, who merely munched on some grass as his victim was put in an ambulance with a knee injury.
The man was in a stable condition when taken to Nepean Hospital.
Goats tend to be far more aggressive than their farmyard friends, sheep, particularly in their teenage years.
Sheep are fearful and shy and flee from attackers, while goats tend to face their attackers when they feel threatened.
