Snake Head in Food Rattles Diner at US Restaurant

Associated Press

CLIFTON PARK, New York-A diner at a restaurant in upstate New York says he got a little something extra with his broccoli – a severed snake head.

Jack Pendleton told The Times Union of Albany that he was at the T.G.I. Friday’s restaurant in the town of Clifton Park on Sunday when he spotted something gray mixed in with his vegetables. He realized it was a snake head the size of his thumb, with part of the spine still attached.

Pendleton says he snapped a photo with his cell phone camera and called the waiter over. He says he has no plans to sue.

A spokeswoman for the Carrollton, Texas, chain says it’s investigating. It wasn’t immediately known what kind of snake it was.

Pendleton and his girlfriend weren’t charged for their meals.
