F&G - Deer Necklace

A mule deer doe in McCall with a trash can lid stuck on her neck.

Late last week, Fish and Game’s McCall office received a flurry of calls about a mule deer doe with a trash can lid stuck on her neck. Sure enough, when staff went to check things out, she was wearing a large, metal lid.  

The lid did not appear to be on tightly, and was not affecting her ability to move or eat, so staff waited overnight to give her a chance to pull the lid off on her own. Unfortunately, she was unable to do so, and the calls started again the next morning.
