Trick-or-treat deer rescue

Conservation officers have rescued a deer on Vancouver Island that had a plastic jack-o-lantern stuck on its muzzle. 

Officers in Sooke were able to sedate the animal and remove the pink Halloween bucket.

The rescue mission likely saved the animal from a "slow and painful death," the conservation service said.

Homeowners are advised to store away items such as this to prevent incidents with wildlife.
