BIG PINE KEY, Fla. (AP) - 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 U.S. 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.
