Deer put down after creating ‘horrific scene’ in funeral home

A Melbourne funeral home looks like a “horrific crime scene” after a feral deer chased a worker into the chapel before going “completely nuts”.

The 250kg animal charged at the worker at Tobin Brothers Funerals at Ringwood yesterday afternoon, managing director James MacLeod said.

The animal was “going completely nuts” in the chapel and smashed into furniture and walls, injuring itself.

“It was bleeding and it’s like a horrific crime scene in here,” he said.

A funeral was due to be held in the chapel on Thursday night but was relocated due to the damage.

“The family were understanding but they didn’t quite believe it,” Mr MacLeod said.

Alternative arrangements have been made for upcoming funerals. The damage is estimated at $100,000.

The deer was contained and put down by rangers.

Victoria’s feral deer population is estimated at one million by the National Parks Association, with increasing calls to cull the numbers.
