Florida sheriff’s deputies rescue a deer with its head stuck in a Dorito’s bag. While on parol, early Sunday morning, two officers came across the endangered animal on No Name Road on Big Pine Key.

The animal allowed the deputy to remove the bag without a struggle, then it scampered away,” stated spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin.

“It must have wanted that last chip in the bottom of the bag,” Herrin added.

The Key, known for its characteristic size, is a subspecies of the white-tailed deer, and lives only in the Florida Keys.

Due to living so closely to humans the Key has little fear of them, and is often found in residents’ yards.

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.
