Now that Halloween has come and gone, many have wondered what the best method is to get rid of their pumpkins. But one Vancouver woman has undoubtedly found the most Canadian (and genius) way to make sure her Halloween décor doesn't go to waste.
Over the weekend, CBC journalist Manusha Janakiram shared a clip of her recycling method, writing: "And I woke up wondering what to do with our pumpkin. Apparently it's being taken care of."
In a 30-second video, an adorable deer is seen eating the orange gourd on her porch.

The clip has now gone viral on Twitter with more than 6,200 retweets. Many users have since praised Janakiram's accidental recycling method, and some also noted that they often feed their own pumpkins to wildlife so they don't go to waste.

We feed leftover pumpkins to cows on farm where I work. They love & so good for them. Once threw 15 to bulls & just about had bull fight! 🐃— Jennifer Lengwin (@jenjlen) November 4, 2017

Some even joked that the deer eating the pumpkin is a sign that once Halloween ends, Christmas immediately arrives.

Although many people might think there's no good use for carved pumpkins after Halloween, this isn't true at all. According to the National Wildlife Federation's blog, there are plenty of ways to recycle your pumpkin, including composting, planting the seeds, or turning it into a snack-o-lantern (a.k.a a bird feeder).
