  • One Person Dead Another Critically Injured After Feral Deer Attack In VIC

The animal, a cross between an elk and deer, attacked shortly after the man entered the enclosure on his property near the town of Wangaratta, 200 km northeast of Melbourne in Victoria state. "There is a large family network and the [people] we've spoken to... it's beyond words how affected they are by this incident".

The woman suffered life-threatening upper-body and leg injuries and was treated at the property by paramedics.

Local media said that the injured woman was helped from the deer's pen by her teenage son.

The deer badly injured his wife when she came to her husband's aid, police said.

He said it was not the first time he had heard of a deer killing a human during mating season.

A man has been killed by a near on a property in Victoria.


Police said they then shot and killed the deer at the scene near Wangaratta, a city roughly 250 kilometres from Melbourne.

The family had had the animal for about six years, it was reported.

"They are a wild animal and a wild animal that loses its fear of humans is a really risky thing".

"It's not an everyday occurrence, but it's not unheard of for deer to kill people in that situation", he said.

But feral populations have since expanded across the country with increasing calls for greater controls in many areas where they are considered a pest.

A recent study into all deaths caused by animals in Australia between 2000 and 2013 found none had involved deer. Howlett said fallow and red deer become particularly aggressive during the mating season.
