Four dogs were seen attacking and injuring a deer at Bear Mountain golf course on Saturday.

Tannis Fillion was walking her 6 month old dog along the trail next to the course when the dogs raced past her and started chasing a deer down the hill.

The pack eventually drove the dear into a sandpit at the bottom of the hill, where they continued to attack and bite their prey.

In the video recorded by Fillion, she can be heard screaming for help for several minutes before the owners of the four dogs arrived.

Once they reached their pets, the man and woman took several minutes to gather up the dogs and get them away from the injured deer.

According to an update later on, Fillion confirmed that the deer had to be put down due to a broken leg and other major injuries.

Police, BC SPCA and Wild ARC have been notified of the incident.

The fate of the dogs will be decided by the SPCA and the owners, if charged, may be fined up to thousands of dollars, depending on their level of cooperation.
