A Chinese food restaurant in Kentucky is accused of serving up roadkill, according to a Tuesday report.
The Whitley County Health Department shut down the Red Flower Chinese Restaurant after the owner admitted to bringing in roadkill, a deer found dead on the highway.
Customer Katie Hopkins says she was the one who called authorities after watching the animal being wheeled in during lunch last week.
"There was this tail, a big, white, fuzzy, tail. A leg was sticking out of the garbage can. They had a box on top of it. They were wheeling it in there, like really quick, like trying to hurry. One of the other employees was mopping up blood that was dripping out of the garbage and on to the floor."
Customers say they don't know if they'll be back in the future.
