This deer got bagged. Literally.

But it is breathing easier now, thanks to a deputy from the Monroe County (Fla.) Sheriff's Office.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, a deputy was able to help out a deer that got its head stuck inside a bag of Doritos in Big Pine Key, Fla., removing the bag from the animal's head.

"It must have wanted that last chip in the bottom of the bag," Deputy Becky Herrin told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel report:

The deer calmly waited for the deputies to approach, said Herrin. Deputy Joshua Gordon snapped a cellphone picture, and then, with the deer fully cooperating, removed the bag, said Herrin. No longer bagged and blind, the deer then scampered away.

"I think it wanted that bag off," said Herrin of the normally skittish deer, a miniature subspecies of the white-tailed deer found only in the Lower Keys
