Last year, it was estimated that Victoria was home to more than one million feral deer, prompting Victorian National Parks Association spokesperson Philip Ingamells to tell The Age "deer are just giant hoofed cane toads... and they're poised to take over the nation".

According to police the Waipiti deer - a cross between a red deer and an elk - had been a pet of the family for about 2 years.

He added that it's not unheard of for a deer to fatally attack humans in a domesticated scenario, adding: "Deers stop eating, they shed a huge percentage of their body weight".

Describing Mr McDonald, she said: "He's a bit of a character, you could have a good laugh with him, a bit of fun".

The number of deer - and their spread - is rapidly increasing in Victoria, including near cities.

Deer were introduced to Australia in the 19th century.
