(Newser) – An inspector has shut down a Chinese restaurant after finding its workers butchering a deer on the premises, the Buffalo News reports. Health officials, who arrived at the restaurant after a tip, aren't sure if the animal was hunted or roadkill—or what the China King had planned for the meat. Regardless of the deer’s fate, officials say it's illegal to butcher a carcass inside a restaurant.
