The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is looking to help a deer that has been seen roaming a residential area with a large plastic snack jar stuck on its head.


Many news outlets in Maryland are reporting the deer —  nicknamed "Jughead" — has been seen several times in the Bel Air, Md., neighborhood of Glenwood Country Club Park with the clear jar completely covering its head. The jar is believed to have once contained pretzels.



The DNR is trying to track the animal and tranquilize it in order to remove the jar. According to WBAL in Baltimore, the DNR said the male deer is less than a year old and probably can survive for some time with the object on its head.

Chris Beauchamp, a resident of Glenwood Country Club Park, told WTOP the deer was first seen more than a week ago.


"It can't eat, it can't drink, and now going over a week since he was first spotted — and who knows how long before that — he's been without food and water," Beauchamp told the TV station. "The whole community has kind of chipped in to kind of watch out for this guy and try to get it some help."


Beauchamp also shot several photos of the animal and shared them with local media outlets.

DNR spokesman Greg Bortz told FoxBaltimore Thursday the deer appeared to be in good health. DNR staffers had not been able to get close enough for a safe and clear shot with the tranquilizer gun.

They were expected to return Friday to look for another chance to help the animal.
