The whitetail deer gets its name from white fur on the underside of its tail. These reddish-brown colored deer have skinny legs, but that doesn’t keep them from running at speeds of nearly 40 miles per hour or jumping over fences and other objects around 9 feet tall. Wisconsin is an ideal habitat for the deer, as it has many crop fields and heavily treed areas where coverage and food are abundant.

Deer are found in many states in the U.S., as well as other countries, such as Canada and Mexico. Wisconsin, however, claims them as the state’s “wildlife animal.” The state animal is the badger, but because deer are so prevalent throughout the state, officials created this status in 1957.
