'But there was like a tail, and a foot and leg sticking out of the garbage can and they wheeled it straight back into the kitchen.'
The restaurant owner's son admitted they had found the roadkill along the side of the I-75 but insisted they had not intended to serve it to their customers.
Marveling at the irony with disgust Ms Hopkins said: 'We were actually joking about the, you know, the whole Chinese restaurant. You know some rumors that you hear.'
Stomachs turned at a Chinese restaurant in Kentucky last week when in the middle of enjoying a buffet lunch, customers noticed a rubbish bin full of roadkill being wheeled into the kitchen.
Locals and regulars of the Red Flower Restaurant in Williamsburg couldn't believe their eyes as they watched the owner's son and an employee pushing a clumsily concealed deer carcass through the dining room as it dripped blood all over the floor.
In a useless attempt to avoid unwanted attention, the men had tried to hide the dead animal under a box, but to all watching, the shocking truth was plain to see.
Red Flower regular, Tonya Thacker admitted she vomited straight away after witnessing the gut-wrenching scene.
'I don't think I'll ever eat Chinese food again,' she said.
Another diner, Katie Hopkins, described how 'two of the workers came in wheeling a garbage can and they had a box sitting on top of it. And hanging out of the garbage can, they were trying to be real quick with it so that nobody could see it.

What is that “roast squab” on the menu of your local Chinese restaurant?
Your food should never have “Goodyear” written backwards on it.
They could actually make a ton of money advertising themselves as a “Chinese Roadkill” restaurant.
This might have been a purposeful stunt.
Just a thought.
Wow! Kung pao venison—sounds yummy!
Got to give them credit, they are doing the best they can in difficult economic times in this Obama recession/depression.
When the economy collapses, this will be considered a delicacy, that is ? if you can find anymore deer left.
Cats will be an endangered species also.
Never eat at a Chinese restaurant with a pet store next to it.
Special tonight “General Bambi’s Chicken”
Ewwwww! That is disgusting. I bet they were going to chop that up and put it in something.
Obviously, the restaurant staff missed that part about personal consumption. They were probably in violation of some law concerning intent to sell a game animal. Probably also a technical game violation just being in possession of a game animal without a license.
the venison go down...
Yes, but I think there is a big issue with gutting and butchering an animal, road kill or otherwise, for their own consumption or not, in a kitchen were other food is being prepared and served to the public, i.e. cross contamination.
And while not a hunter myself Ive been friends with quite a few. Most field dress i.e. gut and drain the kill or some do it in some sort of out building, but not, never in their kitchen, thats a big no no. Heck even most fishermen (and fisherwomen) Ive known gut their fish outside or in the garage.
I used roadkill venison for a pot of chili I entered in a chili cookoff once........and I won.
I don't disagree with you. I was primarily pointing out that roadkill is fit for human consumption as long as it is fresh and the animal wasn't busted up.
True enough, and Im not disagreeing with you either. But as for me, unless I killed the road kill critter with my own vehicle, or saw it getting hit and could get it field dressed and butchered fairly quickly or knew and trusted the person who did, Im not going to eat it and Im not sure I would even would then to many unknowns with picking up road kill vs. hunting an animal most hunters BTW get to observe a deer for a while before shooting it, but if a deer jumps in front of your car at highway speed, aside from its very likely going to be busted up, you also dont know if it was acting funny, scitsy , i.e. sick before it jumped in front of some vehicle, even your own.
What is disturbing is that they drug the carcass that was stuffed into a trash can through the dining room leaving a trail of blood behind as they dragged it that sounds pretty smashed up to me. You hit a deer at highway speed, there is likely to be internal organ damage, i.e. guts, bowls leaking into the abdominal cavity. (bleck). If it were a survival situation, I was on the verge of starvation, I might be willing to take some chances but otherwise, you can keep the road kill. : )
If they brought this through the front door and across the dining room, it kinda makes you wonder what they bring in through the back door.
There is your problem right there.
