Oct. 30 (UPI) -- A group of Ohio neighbors followed a deer for four miles to remove the orange plastic pumpkin stuck on the animal's face.

Residents of the Sherwood Forest neighborhood in Anderson Township said the deer had been wandering around with the plastic pumpkin stuck on its head for about four days and the object was preventing the deer from eating or drinking.

Daryl Meyerrenke, owner of the Family Pet store, and charity organization 2nd Chance Wildlife Rescue became involved and a group of volunteer rescuers pursued the deer after it was again spotted Sunday.

The rescuers followed the deer for about four miles until they were able to corner it and remove the bucket.

Meyerrenke said the bucket will now be used at his store to collect donations for the wildlife rescue group.
