Beastley broke the cone of shame shortly after having it placed on his head. He did not like it and it made him more upset with it on. This may sound crazy but we placed a pair of underpants on him leaving the areas open that needed to be (or cut an opening) he did look funny but it worked. He was less stressed and we kept him crated for the most part with toys and food. In th end it will all work out just be cautious for running/jumping. Good luck.
