SASKATOON - Wildlife officials in Saskatchewan are investigating a video posted on Facebook that shows a hunter riding a wounded deer on a sled down a hill.

The video shows the animal, apparently bleeding after being shot, flailing in the snow at the bottom of the slope.

Gary Provencher with Saskatchewan's Ministry of Environment describes the video as disturbing.

He says staff are investigating possible charges under the Saskatchewan Wildlife Act.

RCMP have been notified but don't believe there's enough evidence to lay criminal charges.

Provencher says he has asked that the video be taken off the social media page.
