Deer’s Incredible Speed, Races Cars on Texas Highway
A majestic deer was spotted racing cars on a bustling Texas highway
Sheesh I knew deers were fast, but I didn't know they could reach highway speeds.
The video at the bottom of this article shows a deer sprinting down a highway in Dallas, Texas.
The Need for Speed
This sucker is really moving. The cars passing it are probably going seventy-five miles per hour, so I'm assuming the person filming the video is on a frontage road, probably going around fifty-five miles per hour with the deer running at that same pace.
Is that possible?
After doing a little research, it turns out that reindeer can get up to 55 miles per hour. but regular deer top out at 40 miles per hour. Still super fast, but I think this one might be going a little faster than that.
How Did it Get There?
Deer are well-adapted runners, built for speed and agility. Their long, powerful legs and lean bodies allow them to reach impressive speeds, particularly in situations where they feel threatened or disoriented. While it's common to spot deer near roads and highways, it's rare to witness one putting its natural abilities to the test against speeding vehicles.
This extraordinary event serves as a reminder to us all that nature's wonders often await us in unexpected moments. Whether it's a breathtaking sunset, a soaring eagle, or a daring deer racing cars on a Texas highway, we should always take a moment to appreciate the beauty around us.
