Man brings dead raccoon into a San Francisco McDonald's, forces location to close

A customer posted video of the troubling scene online and, although details remain thin about the circumstances, the incident is quickly becoming a symbol of the tough situation the city faces with mentally ill citizens and the businesses grappling with serving them.

Chris Brooks, 54, of San Francisco was picking up an Egg McMuffin before work at the McDonald's at Potrero Avenue and 16th Street when he saw the man gripping the lifeless animal in his arms. Brooks ran to his car to get his phone to take video.

"The guy came in screaming, 'Help, help, help!'" said Brooks. "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. "

He added: "There was blood on the table and blood on the floor and, with people walking around, you could see them tracking the blood around."

From the link: "... the incident is an example of the type of difficult situation San Francisco business owners can find themselves in when serving customers who are addicted to drugs or potentially mentally ill."

1. Are they sure he didn't buy it there and was simply returning it?

4. McDonald's doesn't sell racoons in the morning.

That's part of the lunch menu.
