After an apparent act of animal cruelty, a Florida sheriff’s deputy spotted a deer with a Doritos bag on its head and removed it.
According to the Associated Press, the Monroe County sheriff’s deputy discovered the Key deer while on patrol late Saturday evening and saw that its entire head was engulfed in a family-size Doritos bag.
While it isn’t clear how the bag got onto the deer’s head, Sheriff’s spokeswoman Becky Herrin told reporters that the deer allowed the deputy to remove the bag without a struggle. The flavor of the Doritos is also unknown at this time.
The Key deer is an endangered deer that lives only in the Florida Keys and is a subspecies of the white-tailed deer. Males usually weigh from 55 to 75 pounds, while females usually weigh between 44 and 64 pounds.
It is said that these specific types of deer do not fear humans and so they are often found in residents' yards and along roadsides. This often results in car-to-deer collisions, as the deer are more active (and harder to avoid) at night. It is not unusual to see them at dusk and dawn.
