Peachtree City residents told Channel 2 Action News the deer are charging at their animals and causing a handful of dogs to get hurt and one even died from its injuries.
“We are not talking dogs attacking the deer, and the deer retaliating. We are talking people that are walking their innocent dogs down the pathway being chased, being followed and even being attacked,” says resident Christy Daniels.
In recent weeks, encounters with deer have taken a scary turn for some Peachtree City dog owners.
“The deer had raised up on its back two legs and came down on her with its front two hooves at least twice,” said Carolyn Taylor, who told us just a couple weeks ago, she was on a walk on the cart path near Mantle Court with her two dogs when they came across a deer.
