INITIAL REPORT: State police are investigating after two dogs reportedly attacked and killed a young deer at Jacksonville Elementary last month, according to a statement released on Wednesday.

Cameras at the elementary school recorded the incident just after 11 p.m. on November 30. Oregon State Police said that the video captured a woman seen trying to keep control of two dogs that were attacking a "small deer" on the school grounds.

"Approximately 20 minutes later one of the dogs returns and attacks the deer again for approximately 12 minutes before the deer appears to die," the agency said.

OSP said that it would like to talk with the woman seen on the video. Anyone with information about the woman or dogs pictured is asked to contact the agency at 1-800-442-2068 or *OSP and leave information for Trooper Brittany Hanigan.
