Germering - A dog running freely tore off a pregnant deer on Sunday afternoon near the Starnberger Weg.
The alarmed police had no choice but to give the severely injured animal the coup de grace.
A witness had seen the incident.
According to her description, the mixed breed dog first chased the deer and then attacked it.
The witness and her three family members screamed with all their might until the dog finally let go of the deer.
First the dog ran towards the family, but then ran in the direction of the parking lot across from the recycling center.

Germering: poaching dog kills deer - police with an appeal to dog owners
Especially in the springtime it is irresponsible to let dogs run free in the forest unattended, the Germeringen police said.
This is especially true in the Corona period, when many people are out and about in nature.
That is why the game finds it increasingly difficult to find rest and retreat.
