Chick-fil-A is famous for its fried chicken sandwiches, but now the birds are getting their revenge by pecking the heck out of customers at one Denver outlet so badly that the chain has provided an escort to help guests get in the building.
According to 9 News, a pair of birds in Denver built a nest near a Chick-fil-A unit, and have since gotten it into their heads that the restaurant’s customers harbor ill will toward their nest. The birds are reportedly blackbirds, and on several occasions they’ve dive-bombed people on their way into the restaurant and attacked them with beak and claw.
"Maybe he's just mad we're eating chicken," a manager said.
The attacks have gotten so bad that the restaurant armed an escort with a big red umbrella to protect customers on their way inside. The restaurant’s managers say they plan to leave the birds alone and just hope the attacks pass once the birds’ babies get bigger.
"If we can keep the little ones alive, keep them well and keep our customers safe, it'd be our pleasure," a manager said.
