The video opened to show a white-tailed deer getting out of the barrier by first sliding the right side of his antlers outside and then repeating the same with its left side. After getting its head out, the deer then proceeded to press its body to the ground and slide past the gate.
The deer's smart manoeuvring left internet users amazed. While some praised the animal's "smart move", others simply wrote, "animal intelligence is an instinct".
"Animals are extremely good at brain-muscle coordination and have excellent muscle memory for precisely calculated manoeuvring," wrote one user. "Just fascinating show of extraordinary intelligence in animal species...imagine how immensely blessed the world would be with such level of progressive manoeuvrability for mutual accommodation," said another.
A third commented, "Adaptability is the buzzword," while a fourth simply added, "Very intelligent."
The video accumulated more than 32,000 views and over 2,400 likes.
