It's not what you want to see if you're dining out.

Someone moving a dead deer through the front door.

But the Health Department says it happened at the Red Flower Chinese Restaurant in Whitley County.

The Williamsburg business won't be open for a few days because of that incident.

The Health Department says the owners are going to have to clean every inch of their business before they even think of letting them reopen.

One person who was in the restaurant at that time says she was eating when 2 workers walked in pushing a garbage can full of the deer's remains.

The Health Department says the deer was roadkill found off to the side of I-75.

Inspectors also say the owners of the restaurant were planning on cutting up and using the deer meat for their own personal use.

The Health Department says after the restaurant is cleaned, it will come and inspect the building before signing off on letting it reopen.

Inspectors say it will be next week at the earliest before they return to the restaurant.
