DULUTH -- Clearly, the whitetail doe in Janet Murphy’s Hermantown yard had a problem. It was looking at the world through a large plastic jar.


The clear jar was caught on the deer’s head, its top just below the animal’s ears. This happened sometime last month, Murphy said. With the jar on its head, it could neither eat nor drink.

“I’m just thankful it could get some air in there,” Murphy said.
