Man carries dead raccoon into McDonald’s — forcing restaurant to shut down for sanitizing

Published

on

A San Francisco McDonald’s was shut down temporarily after a man carried a dead raccoon dripping blood into the fast food restaurant.

Another customer posted video on Facebook of the bizarre incident Sunday morning that shows the mentally ill man carrying the dead animal into the restaurant and begging for help, reported San Francisco Chronicle.

“The guy came in screaming, ‘Help, help, help!'” said Chris Brooks, who frequently stops at that restaurant for breakfast. “He came to the counter, and I thought it was a dog at first. The employees told him to leave, and he went and sat down with it.”

The video shows the man get up and walk around the restaurant, leaving the dead animal lying on a table.

“There was blood on the table and blood on the floor and, with people walking around, you could see them tracking the blood around,” he added.

The 54-year-old Brooks told the newspaper that homeless people frequently go to the restaurant for food and to escape the cold, and he said about two dozen customers were in the McDonald’s when the man brought the raccoon inside.

Police responded about 7 a.m. to the incident, and a department spokesman said the man was evaluated for mental health but did not meet the criteria for psychiatric detention.

Officers were not able provide details about the man’s housing situation.

McDonald’s said the restaurant was closed for about two hours while employees sanitized the dining area, and the health department cleared the business for full operations that afternoon.

Patrick Wilson, a political reporter for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, attended the event.

He reported that Democrats were so "noisy" that it was hard to hear the speakers, which include presidential candidates Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

‘Everyone knows what to expect’ at Trump’s Amway Center re-election kickoff

Published

on

Donald Trump considers himself a legendary salesman, but can he really sell America on giving him four more drama-filled years at the White House?

Tuesday, he'll make his big pitch.

The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the "historic" event "has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests."

There's little mystery about how the night will go down.

Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.

After a Florida man was arrested for trying to start a race war, a member of his own family slammed his values.

"A Florida man’s social media posts that threatened violence against African-Americans, Jews and homosexuals and that urged his followers to start a race war netted him a $1 million bond," the Miami Herald reported Saturday. "And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."

Joshua Leff, 40, is being held in the Lee County Jail.
