After two days of rituals and prayers, a Gasparillo family says the buck which lives in their home is now physically attacking them.
Govinda Mathura showed reddish lacerations on his upper thigh and claimed the buck was now threatening to kill them.
During an interview at the family's Hilltop Drive, Gasparillo home, Mathura said he was sleeping between his parents Krishna and Balmatee Mathura around 2 am when he felt a burning on his thigh. When he woke up he saw the lacerations.

They called on professionals to offer psychological help and counselling to the family.
More than five teams of people visited the Mathuras Tuesday.

The house is perched on an incline overlooking the Central Range. It is fenced and Mathura says the supernatural occurrences have been causing them sleepless nights.
