Kentucky restaurant shut down after roadkill found in kitchen
yahoo ^ | 10.2.2012 | Mike Krumboltz

Customers at the Red Flower Chinese Restaurant in Williamsburg, Ky., alerted authorities after they spotted something they probably wish they hadn't: restaurant employees wheeling roadkill back to the kitchen.

Local CBS affiliate WYMT interviewed the witnesses. The roadkill was apparently a deer stuffed into a trash can. "There was actually a blood trail they were mopping up behind the garbage can," customer Katie Hopkins said. "There was like a tail, and like a foot and a leg sticking out of the garbage can, and they wheeled it straight back into the kitchen."

Local health inspector Paul Lawson was called in to investigate. Lawson said the restaurant owners told him they didn't know they were doing anything wrong. "They said they didn't know they weren't allowed to do that. So that makes me concerned that maybe they could have before. They didn't admit to doing it before." The owner said he didn't plan to serve the deer to customers—instead he planned to use it to feed his family.

Why not? I’m a bit surprised that folks in Kentucky, of all places, would rat on them.

One of my daughters ran into a deer in her car earlier this year. After a game warden was called and shot the deer to finish it off, he told her she could bring it home and eat it.

One of our sons went and cut it up for her, and they made part of it into delicious sausage, which went into our freezer. Yummers.

The see that Chinese restaurant owners said they planned to eat it themselves, not serve it to customers.

Anyway, hopefully they can reopen, once inspectors determine that they have “sanitized” the place, whatever that means.

If it left a blood trail, at least it was fresh.

Better than some restaurants

The roadkill was actually deer meat. I have taken home that after the county sheriff deputy shot it. The deputy let me take it. It was a baby buck. I did not hit it but found it injured and called police so the deer would not straggle in the road and cause an accident.

If they had done that there is nothing wrong. The family can eat it. The fact it was in their restaurant makes me cringe.

WTF. and So what? I will admit that our Worthy Oriental Gentlemen could have been a bit slicker avec la présentation.

But in my youthful public service days as Deer Warden, road kill moose and deer went straight to a series of restaurants in my jurisdiction in consideration of various in-kind emoluments. That is why I am not a Presidential Candidate. Not a problem, since the orphanage and county jail often had more than they could deal with.

Moose, BTW, is the viand of the gods. Roasts, delish. Ground moose with a bit of fatback or sowbelly mixed in is the best damn burger you're ever going to eat. Makes them orphans strong!

If theis was the criteria for shutting down resturants, most of theones in West Virginia would be closed.

There was like a tail, and like a foot

Can't people speak anymore? Was it like a foot, or was it a foot? Arg!

I have never heard that done in my area. Some donate meat like that and it is butchered, wrapped in plastic and donated to food banks. Sometimes its parts the hunter did not want, times it is fresh road kill.

I would not eat any meat like this in a restaurant.

I have a friend in New Mexico who has a permit from the game warden to salvage fresh deer killed on the highways.

One night she was cutting up a fresh kill by the side of the road when the game warden drove up and told her half a dozen passers by had called him about “poaching” there. She was allowed to continue to cut up the deer with no problems.

Some states like Tennessee do have a you kill it you grill it law. Really it's a sensible law that if a person hits a deer with a vehicle that can salvage the meat after contacting TWRA. It allows for legal use of the animal rather than it being wasted.

That said it is not lawful in most states to take any game animal into a place where commercial food is served or processed for processing.

This roadkill was actually part of the Michele My Bell, the new “Food Furher” and her plans for organic foods on the menu.

Morgana, Morgana - fresh killed deer is fresh killed deer meat! There is little difference between a deer that has been shot and a deer that has been killed by being struck by an auto. Both only need quick work - from someone who knows exactly what they are doing.

I've been lucky enough to find several deer hit by autos on the road to my work-site - all still were 'warm to the touch.' All were immediately 'dressed' - all provided very good food.

If there is no body heat then it is harder to skin the deer, but that does not mean that the meat is going to be bad. If the musk glands were ripped open by the impact, that's a different story - possibly making it less than satisfactory, depending on how much of it went where. But, even that can be dealt with by a knowledgeable hunter.

I wouldn't recommend recovering a deer for the table to just anyone. It takes a LOT of work, and it has to be done immediately - and whoever is doing that work better know everything he/she needs to know. Otherwise it wouldn't be wise to tackle the job.

not positive, but I believe its unlawfull now in MN for the HP to donate euthenized deer to food banks. I had beed in Sicily because my friend hit a cow that was on the road to the Air Station. He paid for it and the herder got a friend to butcher it, pretty good

Hey thanks, Lurk! But the Road Kill Cookin' and Embezzlement is only a small part of my savory past. I made it as far as Selectman and J.P. until the whole story came out.

If I ever get back in, you are the Deer Warden.
