A man was killed and his wife critically injured on Wednesday when they were attacked by their pet deer on a rural Australian property, police said.

Both suffered critical injuries in the attack.

"The family are just devastated".

The couple's son and daughter have travelled to Melbourne to be with their mother in hospital.

"Moyhu is a small community ... the people who are involved in the incident are well known to them, so what we're looking at putting in place are some opportunities for counselling for community members", Acting Senior Sergeant Pursell said. But there is a significant population of the Sambar deer species in north-east Victoria.

ABC reported the stag had been kept at the property near the town of Wangaratta, 200km northeast of Melbourne, for six years.

Mr McDonald, 47, was feeding the deer in its enclosure when the animal lunged at him, his brother told 9News.

Police said it's believed a man and woman were attacked by a deer on their property.

David Voss, president of the Australian Deer Association, a hunting and deer management organization, said farmed deer tend to be more aggressive than wild deer, but he had only heard of similar attacks "very occasionally".

He added that it's not unheard of for a deer to fatally attack humans in a domesticated scenario, adding: "Deers stop eating, they shed a huge percentage of their body weight".

Police shot dead the deer, which the family had owned for about two years, to protect paramedics trying to save the couple.
