Horse in McDonald's: Leaves a Big Surprise, Owner Gets Fined

A horse in McDonald's? A UK woman was denied service at a McDonalds drive-through in Greater Manchester in England because, well, she was riding on a horse instead of the more traditional mode of transportation - a car.

The horse in McDonald's was accompanied by a girl riding a pony. After being rejected from the drive-through, she decided to actually take the horse into the McDonald's store and placed her order that way. Unfortunately, nature called and the horse in McDonald's left a big poop on the floor as a souvenir, according to the Daily Telegraph.

"We can confirm that on 20th July a woman allowed her pony to enter our restaurant in Whitefield after being refused service in the drive-thru lane," the spokesperson said. "The incident caused distress to customers and disruption for the restaurant and the police issued the woman with a Fixed Penalty notice."

The police report stated that, not surprisingly, "The sight and smell of this caused obvious distress and upset to customers trying to eat, as well as staff members. It also said that "The staff refused to serve the women due to company policy. The women then took the horse into the restaurant who ended up doing his business on the floor."

 "The health safety of our customers and staff is our top priority and for this reason we are unable to serve pedestrians, bicycle riders or customers on horseback through the drive-thru," the spokesperson said.
