Oh. My. Word. (not for the weak of stomach)

Road Kill inside chinese restaurant
Oct 25, 2008 10:48 AM EDT

HAMBURG, N.Y. (WIVB) - Is road kill on the menu at a popular Hamburg, NY restaurant? A disturbing discovery at the China King Restaurant has forced health officials to lock the doors.
Lisa Williams was going to eat in the restaurant when she got some upsetting news.
"Were you coming to eat here?"
"Yeah, we were coming to eat."
"Did you hear what happened?"
"Health inspectors closed it down because there was road kill out here, a deer."
"Oh no."

People who came to China King for their Friday dinner found it hard to believe. A dead deer had been butchered inside the kitchen in the restaurant they've been coming to for years.
Patron, Sue Bender said, "Our daughter just called us because she knows this is our take out Chinese, and told us, you're not going to believe what was just on Channel Four."

A witness tells us he saw an oriental man dragging the deer inside.
"I watched him drag it across the parking lot and he dragged it through the front door of the China King Restaurant. I said this is just not right, so I called Hamburg Police and reported it. Sure enough by the time they got there, they said that he had the deer almost all butchered inside the restaurant."

Another patron wonders, "How stupid could that man be? To let that go on."
Erie County Health Commissioner, Dr Anthony Billitier said, "I don't know what the intention was with the deer, but they can't do that in the restaurant even if they were going to use it for private consumption. It's not consistent with the sanitary code.

Its a story that's closed down the restaurant and caused patron to lose their appetite
Lisa Williams said, "That's disgusting, I'll never eat Chinese again. I'm sorry for all these people out there. That's gross."

When asked if Sue Bender will come here again? She replied, "never...never."
The Health Commissioner tells News4 a hearing with the owner is scheduled for next week.

Happy Birthday, my boy Jonathan David

Happy birthday to our big 8 year old!

We love you so much, Jonathan. And we're proud of the boy you're growing into.

You are so precious.. your personality and humor is larger then life. We can't imagine our lives without you. You add so much to all of us!

To me and dad, you are such a big help. You make us laugh. Your jokes are original and you get the delivery just right -- which makes us laugh even more.

You are a wonderful big brother. Always protecting your little sister with fierce loyalty and we love that! We know you get it that family is everything. You are so right.

More then anything, we are so thankful that you love Jesus. We have prayed and prayed that you would have a tender heart.. and it's so evident in all that you do and say. We know that you belong to Jesus, and we are so thankful --- so thankful -- that your heart is His.

As you begin another year, dear Jonathan, we will continue to pray that you will recognize more and more how important God is in your life, and that you will continue to give Him more and more of yourself.

We love you so much, Jonathan! You truly are our gift from God. Happy birthday, Guy!!

This weekend is Jonathan's 8th birthday. I can't believe he's that old! I'm just.. wow. I'm in shock. So this week I'm busy planning food and presents for his party..

But next week, baby! Next week I'm onto my Thanksgiving lists!! And Christmas!! Can't wait!
