Wildlife officials had to help a deer with a jar stuck on its head

A community in Maryland is working to help free a wild deer spotted with a plastic jar stuck on its head.

Residents of the Bel Air neighborhood have started a Facebook group and contacted the Department of Natural Resources in hopes of rescuing the deer they've come to call 'Jughead." 

"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," resident Chris Beauchamp said. "The whole community has kind of chipped in to kind of watch out for this guy and try to get it some help."

DNR officials have said the deer is a male between seven and eight months old and can still survive for some time with the jar on its head. 

DNR officials said heavy wind in the area and the skittish nature of the group of deer have kept them from getting close enough to pry the deer free.
