MENTOR, Ohio - Have you ever been caught like a deer in the headlights? Well one deer got caught like a deer in the...pumpkin?!

Dramatic video out of Ohio shows a deer running around with its head stuck in a pumpkin bucket. The poor thing was stuck for six agonizing days. People started getting worried, fearing that the deer wasn't able to eat, so they called for help. Officials with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources showed up and tried capturing the deer with a net, bu they failed.

A local teen also gave it a shot. He dressed up in camouflage and hid inside a hunting blind. When the time was right, the teen jumped out and tackled the deer, and the pumpkin bucket fell right off.
