A walker was “horrified” when she saw dogs running off of a lead attacking a herd of deer, leaving three of them dead.
Debbie Ticehurst witnessed the incident near Newick, Sussex. She saw a whippet type dog and a terrier with an owner who could not control them.
She told The Argus newspaper: “One deer was clearly dead but the other was alive and on its back struggling, unable to get up.”
Two injured deer (pictured) were shot at the scene.
