Deer can often seem smart thanks to their senses of sight, smell and hearing, but that isn't always enough to keep them out of some seriously ridiculous situations.
Take, for example, this deer in Lyndhurst, Ohio. The plastic pumpkin may have been stuck to its face for up to nine days, according to residents in the area. That all changed Sunday evening, thanks to the work of three police officers and roughly 20 concerned residents.
"Lyndhurst Police received several calls from residents this morning about the deer, with the plastic pumpkin stuck on its face, that has been seen mostly in South Euclid," the City of Lyndhurst said on its Facebook page.
With some hot leads on its location, the officers eventually were able to corner it and remove the pumpkin.
Incredibly, the same thing happened to a different deer in Ohio just a few weeks ago. In that incident, residents were able to surround the deer and pluck it off its head.
In other wildlife assistance news, a deer in Minnesota was in a much more serious situation when it broke through the ice on a lake and was trapped.
Luckily, some hunters came to the rescue and not only pulled it to safety, but also helped it get up, where it quickly ran off into the woods.
