WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. -- An eastern Kentucky health inspector says he has shut down a restaurant after finding roadkill in its kitchen.
Paul Lawson told WYMT-TV that he went to inspect the Red Flower Chinese Restaurant in Williamsburg after customers complained to the health department that it appeared employees had brought in a dead animal. Lawson said he immediately shut the place down.
Lawson said the restaurant owner's son apparently picked a dead deer up from a roadside and brought it to the eatery. Lawson said the owner reported he didn't plan to serve the animal to customers; he planned to feed it to his family.
The inspector said the owner wasn't aware of health regulations, and will not face any fines.
He said the restaurant can reopen if it passes another health inspection.
