Key Deer Rescued After Getting Head Stuck in Doritos Bag

Deer, what are you doing with that Doritos bag on your head? You're a deer. You're not supposed to eat Doritos. Silly deer, get it together.

Slightly humorous situation aside, this is why, after you've polished off an entire bag of greasy corn chips, you should take the extra 30 seconds to make sure it is disposed of properly; otherwise, it could end up wrapped around a deer's head. And as we've noted, deers are not supposed to eat Doritos.

A Monroe County sheriff's deputy noticed the deer on Big Pine Key while on patrol late Saturday night. The deputy noticed that the bag (we're guessing of the jalapeño and cheddar variety) had become stuck on the deer's face. The deputy was able to remove it without a struggle from the deer.

Key deer are an endangered species. So you're probably laughing at this situation but still kind of feeling bad about it. Just make a promise to yourself not to litter anymore and feel free to chuckle.
