Colorado Parks and Wildlife are searching for a wild deer who may be in desperate need of their help.

Wildlife officials are asking residents of Castle Rock to be on the lookout for a frightened deer who somehow ended up with its muzzle closed shut. A black band can be seen wrapped tightly around the deer's muzzle, making it nearly impossible to eat or drink. 

It's unclear if the deer will survive. While there are no obvious signs of injury, the deer appears to be in distress.

Anyone who sees the deer is asked to contact Colorado Parks and Wildlife immediately at 303-291-7227.
