Chinese Restaurant Shut Down After Customer Spots Roadkill In Kitchen

WKYT.com reports that the Red Flower Chinese Restaurant in Williamsburg was shuttered on Thursday after a customer called the health department when she saw a dead deer being wheeled into the kitchen.

“Two of the workers came in wheeling a garbage can and they had a box sitting on top of it,” Kate Hopkins told the . “And hanging out of the garbage can, they were trying to be real quick with it. So that nobody could see it. 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.”

Paul Lawson, Whitley County’s environmental health inspector, said the owner’s son admitted to pick up the dead animal from the side of I-75 North in Williamsburg. The restaurant was immediately shut down.


“They said they didn’t know that they weren’t allowed to,” Lawson said. “So that makes me concerned. But maybe they could have before. They didn’t admit to doing it before.”

Owners can reopen the restaurant, Lawson said, if it passes a secondary health inspection proving that they have properly sanitized it.

Six Abandoned Bulldog Puppies Rescued From Locked Suitcase

An Ohio man has been charged with animal abandonment after Humane Society authorities matched his name with a suitcase in which the six puppies had been trapped. The suitcase, allegedly belonging to Howard Davis, 53, had been left next to a garbage can in a Toledo alleyway.

The puppies were discovered after someone noticed their mother pacing around the closed suitcase. Toledo Area Humane Society spokeswoman Cyndi Condit told Reuters that Davis lives only two blocks from where the puppies were found.

“Howard’s name was on the tag of the suitcase and the mother was licensed to him,” Condit said.


If convicted, Davis faces a maximum sentence of 90 days in jail and a $750 fine. Davis claims the suitcase was stolen from him and that he had given the dogs to a friend in Michigan. Over the next four weeks, the three male and three female puppies will remain with their mother before they are eligible for adoption. But they also have a job to do in the meantime: literally serving as evidence against Davis.

“It’s unfortunate he chose to abandon the dogs,” said Humane Society’s executive director John Dinon. “If he had just called us and said he couldn’t care for them, we would have taken them and he wouldn’t have been charged with a crime.”
