Surveillance video showing a man shooting a deer in a Monrovia neighborhood has angered people in the area. Many say the animals are part of the neighborhood, located at the base of the foothills.

The home surveillance video recorded Thursday afternoon shows what appears to be a man armed with a bow and arrow who shoots the deer. The video doesn’t show the deer being struck, but the animal is seen running by.

The Tapert family found the footage on their home security cameras after finding blood in the streets.

Monrovia police confirmed to NBC4 that it is illegal to shoot a bow and arrow in the city without a permit.
