Bouncing Bambi! ‘Flying’ deer soars high into the air in jaw-dropping leap
- A deer was filmed jumping and soaring through air in India as it crossed a road
- The small animal can be seen running up and leaping across in a viral video
- The clip has more than 129,000 views on Twitter after being shared last week
This is the astonishing moment a deer hit dizzying heights as it leapt through the air.
The clip, shared by the WildLens Eco Foundation in India on January 15, has more than 129,000 views with 6,710 likes.
In the video the small deer runs up to the road before it springs up for a leap and soars through the air – reaching roughly the height of a person standing by and watching – before landing into the greenery on the other side.
People in the comments were impressed by the daring jump, but some have expressed their concern that the animal is scared.
Reeta Sinha said: ‘Yes the gold medal goes to daring “Deer” what a jump! I can’t believe this.’

‘Whoa this felt straight out of some Action movie,’ Ruchit Mehrotra also commented.
Another user added: ‘Absolutely no need for that jump. Bugger is just showing off!’
However another comment read: ‘No wonder…he was terrified!!!! The people in the end of the video is why it risked its life.
‘You see his face as he sees the people so close by. Poor thing! Many will berate me. It’s happened many times before when an animal is scared. People don’t care.’

Ronald Lester also said: ‘That deer is a fawn! It still has its spots. It’s why it jumped so scared.
‘An older deer wouldn’t have even gotten that close to loud ass humans with human smells. You would have never seen it.
‘It would have quietly moved in the bushes ahead of or behind them, then just crossed.’
Some deer are thought to be able to jump as high as 12 feet, although this depends on the type of species, according to site World Deer.
