How can the goat escape?

A goat is stuck in a field, and wants to escape. The fence around the field is high enough for the goat to jump over.Also the goat has a chain around its neck. The chain is only a metre long, wheras the field is ten metres squared.
How can the goat escape from the field?

Re: How can the goat escape?

Jumps over the fence 'cause the chain isn;t attached to anything.

hahaha ... that's right, easy to ASSUME the chain is attached on the other end.

My life is not pointless. My life can stab you to death.
