Ambulance Victoria said she had flown to Alfred Hospital in Melbourne in a serious condition.

The deer has since been euthanized.

The investigation is ongoing.

As many as a million wild deer would live in Victoria, according to a 2017 state report.

Their numbers increased after the Black Saturday Bushfires in 2008 and calls have been made to abolish the growing population.

Victoria & # 39; s National Park Association said in 2018 that the animals were destructive to the natural landscape.
