No. They prefer not to jump fences and will try to get through or around them, but will jump low ones if pushed. I have seen them do it.

I hear they will make holes in your fences at the corners. If they can get their head through they will just keep going! Is this true??

There is a house near the river in Medina and they have a low fence with a couple of blackbuck and some corsicans roaming around. I have hardly ever seen the animals near the fence. Some friends of mine in Cedar Park have a wild hog. She is about 8 and they have had her since she was tiny. She doesn't root, but love if you bring her fruit. She follows them around like a dog. Weighs about 40lbs and can have an attitude some days. But she doesn't ever wander away.

i think its all about the pressure that gets put on them. a blackbuck could jump a fence with ease if it wanted to. it just seems like they dont want to most of the times.



It's not how you fall, It's how you get up.

I have seen one blackbuck doe jump a fence when pressured. If they are raised in that pasture I do not think you will have a problem. Need to check the fence regularly and make sure there are no slide or digs under it or they will get out under the fence. Most of the sheep will not jump a fence. Any of the Oryx family that is raised in small pastures will do ok also. Dogs and coyotes will be really bad on Blackbuck and any sheep you put in that pasture.

Under pressure a cow will jump a low fence. It's all about motivation. Blackbuck are typically considered a "low-fence" animal.

When spooked they jump up and down like pogo sticks. I think that when they do jump a fence it is not really intentional. Like everyone else says they can if spooked but normally do not.

I took my first Blackbuck last year. During the stock he got onto me and did jump a fence.

We have blackbucks on our low fence place and they have stuck around. My Dad and I unintentionally jumped one up one afternoon in the truck. It got scared so bad that it tried to run straight through the fence. Ended up breaking it's neck so we had to shoot it. Sure tasted good though.

I have a 6' panel in a section of my catch pens that I have seen them jump with ease. They are capable of clearing regualr cattle height fence, but don't typically just do it like a whitetail would. They need to be pushed most of the time to do it and even then, if they can see through it, they may try to go through it first.
