This story may be tough for some to stomach. A Chinese restaurant in Kentucky is accused of serving up roadkill.

"I was just like, oh God," one customer said. "You know. I was like, I couldn't believe it. I just could not."

The Whitley County Health Department shut the Red Flower Chinese Restaurant down after the owner admitted to bringing in roadkill -- a deer found dead on the highway.

Officials say the restaurant was apparently going to feed it to customers because they had it "all cut up and they were dissecting it."

Customer Katie Hopkins says she was the one who called authorities after watching the animal being wheeled in during lunch last week.

"There was this tail, a big, white, fuzzy, tail," Hopkins says. "A leg was sticking out of the garbage can. They had a box on top of it. They were wheeling it in there, like really quick, like trying to hurry. One of the other employees was mopping up blood that was dripping out of the garbage and on to the floor."

Some customers say they don't know if they'll be back to their doors in the future.

"For them to have picked something off the road, who knows how long it had been dead?!"
