A ‘flying’ kite flies over the road in a physics-defying clip
A deer has shamed Michael Jordan after it was filmed jumping insanely high while crossing a road in India. A jaw-dropping video of the gravity-defying feat had over 85,000 views on Twitter as of Monday morning.
“And the gold medal in the long and high jump goes to….” reads the caption for the high-flying footage, which was shared on the India-based environment’s Twitter account on Friday NGO WildLense Eco Foundation.
In the exhilarating slow-motion clip, a spotted deer can be seen emerging from a river and leaping effortlessly down a dirt road. During the incredible soaring leap, the ungulate glides through the air at about the height of a person as if suspended by wires in a Hong Kong kung fu movie.
The clip ends with this badass Bambi navigating through the bushes on the other side of the path and running away under the amazed gaze of passers-by.
Although the clip poster doesn’t actually disclose the type of deer featured in the images, the axis deer – a species native to India – can apparently jump over fences when threatened, Hunting heart reported.
Wildlife enthusiasts on social media were impressed by the leap evoking the animal’s ‘womb’.
“Wow, I’ve never seen such a long jump from anyone, but this one literally flies,” commented a wondering onlooker impressive airtime of the acrobatic animal. Another wrote, “Yes, the gold medal goes to the audacious ‘Deer’, what a leap! I can’t believe this.
A fan compared the scene something like an “action movie”.
This isn’t the first time an animal has shown seemingly species-defying athleticism. Two years ago, a javelin proved pigs could “fly” after it was filmed galloping down an Arizona street at ridiculous speed.
