  • Man dies in deer attack in Victoria

A man has died in a rare deer attack in Victoria's north-east, while his wife has been flown to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Ambulance Victoria said she had suffered upper body and leg injuries.

He said a local ambulance officer treated the couple at the scene but the man's injuries were fatal. "It's beyond words how they've been affected by this incident today", he said.

Victoria's deer population is primarily made up of four species: sambar, fallow, red and hog deer.

In the nine years to 2017, Australia has not logged any deaths directly caused by deer, though 77 deaths were linked to cows and horses, the Australian Broadcasting Corp reported, citing the national statistics agency.

"An animal that would be otherwise docile for 10 months in the year, is an animal you really don't want to be around for two months", he told the news outlet. A deer. Their pet deer.

Mr McDonald's wife and son heard the attack unfold, and ran to help. "We didn't know what was happening".

"At some point in time while he was inside the enclosure, he was attacked by the deer", Victoria Police Acting Senior Sergeant Paul Purcell Paul Purcell said.

The deer was euthanised due to concerns about the paramedic's safety on the scene.

Steve Garlick, the chairman of the deer management committee at the Australian Deer Association, said it was very unusual for a deer to kill a person.

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