A Minnesota woman came to the aid of a deer whose head was stuck in a plastic jar for at least four days. After fruitlessly seeking help through a variety of channels, Janet Murphy followed a recommendation on Facebook and called Wildwoods, a wildlife rehabilitation group in Duluth, which sent a volunteer to help. Using a 10-foot catch-pole provided by the group, Murphy was able to free the deer. A Wildwoods representative said litter is often a problem for animals.
