RAWLINS, Wyo. (AP) — Wildlife officials are investigating a Rawlins restaurant after a possible road-killed animal was found in its freezer.

West Rawlins game warden Brady Frude said meat samples were taken for lab sampling during a search of the China House restaurant on Tuesday. He said it doesn’t look like the meat was served to customers.

Owner Ed Gong said that an employee had taken meat from a deer he had found and was planning to cook it for himself. Gong said it wasn’t served to customers.

Game and Fish regional wildlife supervisor Jason Hunter said the agency usually doesn’t allow people to take and eat animals killed by cars. Road-killed animals are supposed to be tagged by a game warden.
