A¬†deer¬†in the Florida Keys is breathing more easily after a deputy removed a Doritos¬†bag from its head.
The Monroe County sheriff's deputy discovered the Key¬†deer¬†while on patrol late Saturday evening. Its entire head was stuck in the chips bag.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Becky Herrin says the¬†deer¬†allowed the deputy to remove the bag without a struggle.
Key¬†deer¬†are the smallest of the Virginia white-tailed¬†deer¬†subspecies and are endangered. The US Fish and Wildlife Services says the¬†deer¬†have been threatened by development, habitat loss and hurricanes.
Herrin reminds Florida Keys visitors to properly dispose of trash to protect animals from harm.
