A MAN is wanted by police after a deer was killed in an apparent dog attack.

Officers have released an image of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the attack, which is believed to have happened near Water End Lane in Ayot St Peter at around 1.30pm on Friday.

A Muntjac deer was killed, police believe, by one or more dogs.

Sergeant Jamie Bartlett from the rural operational support team said: “We’d like to speak to this man to find out what happened. It may be that he witnessed the incident and can provide more information.

“I would remind people that it is an offence to hunt a mammal using dogs in this country.

“And it is also illegal to have your dog dangerously out of control, which could result in another animal being killed.”

If you recognise this man or have any information call sergeant Bartlett on non-emergency number 101.
