Wisconsin wildlife officials say they are investigating a canine attack at a deer farm that killed 10 white tails in Webster, Wis. 

According to a USDA Wildlife Services report obtained by Eyewitness News through the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, nine buck fawns and one adult breed doe in a captive facility were killed Tuesday. The report says some deer died from trauma associated with running into the fence. 

Chase Fornengom, owner of Chase and Dream Whitetails, says the attack happened around 10-11 a.m. 

Fornengom and the USDA initially believed that the attackers were wolf-hybrids, but the DNR confirmed Tuesday evening that they were husky breed dogs. 

The USDA report says that two of the dogs were killed by the property owner inside the facility fence, and another escaped.

According to the DNR, there have been similar reports of dogs chasing deer earlier this year in the same area.
