Video of Brazilian goat on the rampage goes viral

An angry goat in Brazil has earned online notoriety after it was filmed attacking people in a Brazilian town near Sao Paulo.

Onlookers in the town of Londrina are seen running away to escape the wrath of the goat, however some residents were not so lucky.

The goat initially looks like it is innocently following a woman carrying shopping, but it quickly turns nasty when it knocks the woman down.

One man who unsuccessfully tried to retaliate against the goat was swiftly forced to the ground, before he tried to evade the animal by running around a tree.

The perpetrator even butted a moving motorcycle; nearly knocking two riders off of the bike.

The video, posted on YouTube, has been viewed more than two and a half million times around the world.
