Bull vs Ram – One Gets Knocked Out!! [VIDEO]
This is one of the most impressive head to head collisions I've ever seen!
A bull feeling his oats and protecting his herd and a ram with a poor disposition face off in the video below.
We don't know the exact weight of the bovine in the video, but most bulls weight well over 1200 lbs and the bulls you see on the Professional Bull Rider circuit often weigh near 2000 lbs. With size and strength on his side, you'd think this bull would make quick work of a ram.
The average ram weighs somewhere between 160 and 200 lbs. During mating season, rams will face each other, rear up on their hind legs, and hurl themselves at each other in charges of some 20 miles an hour. Their collisions can be heard echoing through the mountains as the confrontation is repeated sometimes for many hours until one of the challengers submits and walks away. The ram's thick, bony skull usually prevents serious injury.
Lets do the math and figure out how much force is generated in this collision using the approximate wights at 1500 lbs for the bull and 200 lbs for the ram. We know that any moving object has energy because of its motion. The momentum (mass * velocity) is related to force. Force is typically defined as mass*acceleration.
Who am I kidding, I'm horrible at math!
Enjoy this massive collision and knockout blow!!
