A Monroe County Sheriff's deputy likely saved the life of an endangered deer in the Florida Keys late Saturday, when he removed a Doritos bag stuck on its head.

Deputy Joshua Gordon noticed the Key deer with a Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon bag stuck on its head while on patrol on Big Pine Key. The deer allowed the deputy to slowly remove the bag.

The agency posted an update on its Facebook page Sunday, reporting that the deer is "breathing, eating, and drinking better today."

All kidding aside...GOOD JOB! That little bit of showing that cops are human and really do have hearts will go a long way. People will rememember this longer than they will the arrest of an armed and dangerous.

People remember this type of thing for one day then go right back to their typical paranoid cop hating ideology.
