How High can a Deer Jump
Most deer can jump twelve feet or higher. Deer jump, instead of going around, because they might be chased by wild coyotes or some other type of predator. You can find more information here: http://www.invisible-deer-fence.com/info/deer_behavior_and_motives_1.htm
Deer can jump eight to ten feet which allows them to leap over fences, if necessary, to get to a food source. It makes you wonder if they could also dunk a basketball if given the opportunity.
