A deer at the Erie Zoo is dead after a vicious attack from a dog.
Zoo workers found a husky in the zoo's Safari Land area around 8:30 this morning.
Zoo officials say the dog attacked and killed an older deer.
There were other deer in the pen at the time, but zoo workers were able to safely contain the others.
Erie city police and animal control arrived on the scene and killed the dog. The dog was wearing tags.
Zoo officials have no idea how the dog got into the zoo.
Mitchell says this is the first time something like this has happened at the Erie Zoo.
And they'll be working to make sure it doesn't ever happen again.
