A pit bull was left regretting his decision to boldly go where no dog has gone before after getting his head jammed in a giant container of cheese puffs.

To test the theory, the scientists studied six dogs to see if they were able to form opinions about humans in food-giving situations.
The study, published in the journal PLoS One, found the dogs did not differentiate between humans who were either generous or selfish in handing out treats in an earlier part of the experiment.
