The Scottish SPCA is appealing for information following the attack.
A carcass was found in a woodland area near to Sheddocksley Sports Centre on Springhill Road on Sunday 17 February.
The deer was found to have fatal injuries that indicated an attack by a pack of dogs consistent with deer coursing.
Deputy chief superintendent Tom Gatherer said ‘The Scottish SPCA is working with Police Scotland to catch those who are hunting animals such as deer by setting their dogs on them.
“Deer coursing is an illegal and barbaric crime which causes the deer horrific pain and suffering and a great deal of distress.
“Our key aim is to help tackle the killing of deer by dogs and reduce the number of animals that are exposed to suffering, which we are able to do when we disrupt organised hunting gangs.”
Anyone with information can contact the Scottish SPCA animal helpline on 03000 999 999 where calls can be taken anonymously.
