You’re Kidding, Right?

After seeing this article, I was kind of hoping it was an April Fools joke…..but that’s not for six more months….


“China King” in Hamburg is closed tonight after health officials say they found a deer being butchered in the kitchen.

A spokesman for the Erie County Health Department tells 2 On Your Side they received a call Friday from a person claiming a deer was being butchered in the South Park Avenue restaurant.

When health officials arrived at the restaurant they did indeed find employees butchering a dead deer.

Erie County Health Commissioner Anthony Billittier has scheduled a meeting Tuesday between the department and restaurant owners to determine what the next step will be.

Officials say they don’t know whether the deer was road-kill or if it had been hunted. They also say that none of the meat had been served to customers.

We don’t eat Chinese anyway…I wonder why.  

If that didn’t turn your stomach a little, here’s a little tidbit from the police blotter a little closer to home.

Halloween decorating became less festive when an 18-year-old student found a metal nail wedged into her cake Oct. 24 in the Wilson Hall cafeteria, MSU police Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor said.

The student found the nail when she bit into her dessert, but she was not harmed, McGlothian-Taylor said.

The woman reported the incident and cafeteria staff investigated. They said nails were out because they were being used to hang holiday decorations.

The incident is still under investigation.
