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.
