According to environmental police, the deer’s head became stuck inside the feeder weeks ago. It restricted the deer’s ability to see, hear, and eat.

The deer was immobilized by an environmental police sergeant with the help of Nantucket’s natural resource officer and residents of the farm the deer was found on.

Environmental police say the deer was found to be in good condition, and was watched over until it fully recovered from the immobilization agent used for sedation.
