This deer thought she was a high jumping Olympian…
I mean, deer can jump pretty high, just not THE high.
Deer are a funny animal and sometimes their own worst enemy. It’s hard to blame them though, they have to be in defensive mode all the time.
It’s a hard life being low on the food chain, they even have to compete for food in many areas. Your whole life is defending and trying to make it to tomorrow.
We’ve seen them make some questionable decisions, jumping off bridges or invading many people’s homes. These decisions are made in the name of survival, but that doesn’t always mean the desired outcome will materialize.
This deer made a bad decision out of fear. As humans approached, the deer panicked to put some distance between itself and the humans.
It took off at full speed hoping to make the jump of its life over a high roadside fence. The stag makes a mighty fine leap that just isn’t good enough.
Only about two meters short…
The deer hits the fence about ¾ of the way up and gets cartwheeled as it comes to a halt in midair. The deer is catapulted back to the ground and takes off in the opposite direction.
Not this fence, not on this day…
fence 1, deer 0.
