Would You Like Fries With That?
Patrons at a McDonald’s restaurant in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, England, “watched in horror” as the store manager used a broom to beat a loose rat to death. The rat, apparently a pet, was released by kids as a prank. “There were screaming kids running everywhere,” said one witness. “The last thing I wanted my granddaughter to see was an animal being clubbed to death. I don’t want to go back to McDonald’s.” A McDonald’s spokeswoman urged calm, saying the manager had “acted quickly and effectively.” (London Mirror)
