What's the grossest thing you've ever seen at a Jack in the Box restaurant? While the fast food chain's food is likely high on many people's list, those who frequent the U District location now have an even more disgusting sight to recall: a severed elk head and a bag full of the animal's guts.
According to KOMO Communities Reporter Kiersten Throndsen, police were called to the Jack in the Box in the 4700 block of University Way Northeast around 1:30 p.m. last Saturday after a 911 caller reported seeing a man in a pickup placing stuff from the bed of his truck into the restaurant's dumpster. That's when things got icky.
According to KOMO:
We received a 911 call after someone witnessed a man driving a truck pull up to the garbage can in the parking south of Jack in the Box and empty the contents of the bed of his truck," said Seattle Police Detective Mark Jamieson.
Those contents included what appeared to be the head of an elk, which the truck's driver dumped into the restaurant's dumpster in the 4700 block of University Way Northeast around 1:30 p.m. Saturday, according to the caller.
When officers arrived, not only did they find the elk head on the ground, but they also discovered a plastic bag containing the animal's guts.
Mmmm. Elk guts.
Throndsen's story notes that police are still investigating the matter. Police tell KOMO the obvious -- that it's definitely illegal to dump crap in a business-owned dumpster within city limits -- and that they're working with animal control to see if any other laws may have been broken.
