We had goats, pigs, sheep, horses, and cattle when I was a kid. The goats were a nightmare.
The goats were always getting out. Our fence was a combination of square holed rolled fence at the bottom about 36" high and two strands of barbed wire above that. The goats would climb over the rolled fence and under the barbed wire. We had to build big "H" shaped contraptions out of galvanized conduit to go around the necks of the ringleaders and even that did not stop them. There was a church across the street always calling because the goats were in the graveyard or eating all the roses.
We had one billy goat who somehow got a rear leg stuck in the top of a 6' high chain length fence around the feeding pen. My uncle was so pissed he went out there with a hacksaw and cut it's hoof off so it couldn't jump as high anymore.
I think anything that a deer could get over a goat will too. I'd hunt the goats.
