Oh dear, deer!

A deer was found wandering in a forest with a pumpkin stuck on its head.

The plastic pumpkin had been stuck on its head for at least four days, according to a CNN report. The pumpkin’s strap was wrapped around the back of the deer’s head, preventing it from eating or drinking.

Local residents posted sightings of the deer on social media, and eventually pet store owner Daryl Meyerrenke and charity organisation 2nd Chance Wildlife Rescue got involved in the mission. A group of helpers cornered the deer, getting close enough to remove the pumpkin.
