A deer has died after being chased by a dog in Bushy Park.
Royal Parks Police said the deer died after it ran into a fence.
“A dog walker had his dog off its lead in Millennium Woods in Bushy Park when it chased some deer,” parks police said.
“One of the deer ran into the fence and unfortunately died.
“These woods are not supposed to have deer in them, however they had managed to gain access.”
The force added: “Please be mindful when walking dogs in the park, that the deer can appear in unexpected places.”
It is the latest incident involving dogs chasing deer in Richmond's Royal Parks.
Last year, four deer were killed by dogs in Richmond Park and two men were prosecuted in court over the incidents.
