Grazing Antelope would have been a better subject line.

A buck that size grazing you with its hooves is dangerous enough...

What interests me is how the antelope could have misjudged the speed
of the bicyclist so badly when there was so much open space.

That wasn't a mistake - the _buck_ was clearing out a competitor. Did
a fair dinkum job of it, too.

Shh, Fred! We don't want Frank Krygowski to come ruin this thread by
telling us the chances of an antelope jumping on your head while
you're on your bike is 10^-15, so you shouldn't ever wear a helmet.

Just as well that with a rack like that the antelope didn't think it
was Al Gore, or that mountainbiker would have ended up Holy.

That was my thought when I learned of the video much earlier.
