Florida deputies spotted an endangered Key Deer with a bag of Doritos over its head early Sunday.

Deputy Joshua Gordon removed the bag from the deer’s head and snapped a photo of it, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said.

Two deputies on patrol saw the deer in the Port Pine Heights Subdivision on No Name Road on Big Pine Key just after midnight, said sheriff’s spokeswoman Becky Herrin.

“It must have wanted that last chip in the bottom of the bag,” Herrin was quoted as saying by the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Herrin added that the deer was calm as it waited for the deputies to come to it, and once the bag was taken off its head, it left.

The Key Deer can only be found in the Florida Keys and southern Florida, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. A study conducted in 2000 found the population to be between 700 to 800, with most of them living on Big Pine Key.
