    There's only so many things you can do. You could take a broom out with you and block him with it. I've had roos who run when they see the broom, and I've had some that are relentless and attack anyway. If you don't want to put up with it, you could try to re-home him, or do what I do when I have a mean one: take 'em to the pot. However, if he doesn't attack you every day, I would maybe give it a little more time and see if he keeps attacking and maybe try the broom thing before getting rid of him.
