Unless you grew up and continue to live under a rock, you have no doubt heard the correlation between Fluffy’s sudden disappearance and the Chinese restaurant in the strip mall located behind your neighbor’s house. Whether you are an animal lover or not, I know you have heard variations of this urban legend and whether you choose to believe it is up to you, but I myself enjoy Chinese take-out quite regularly.
It seems that one particular Chinese restaurant in Kentucky has added more fuel to the fire by getting caught red handed trying to sneak an already dead animal in the back door of their restaurant by people eating in their dining room. No, it wasn’t Fluffy; it was Bambi à la asphalt. Yes, you read that right, a deer found dead on the shoulder of I-75 or in layman’s terms: ROAD KILL!
Lunch patrons at the Red Flower Chinese restaurant witnessed 2 workers hurry a trash can with a bloody leg and tail sticking out of the top into the back of the restaurant while another was hastily mopping up the trail of blood left behind. Luckily the quick thinking customers immediately called the authorities so they could get there before the carcass could be cut up. Naturally, the owner of the restaurants story is that they intended to take the meat home and was not going to serve it to unsuspecting customers. I ain’t buying it…
Needless to say they were closed down and the son was cited for possession of an untagged white tail deer after confessing that he had picked it up on the side of I-75. While they will be permitted to re-open when everything has been cleaned and sanitized, I’m pretty sure that no one will be coming through those doors any time soon looking to order a pupu platter all in fear for what they may actually receive.
