A 3-year-old girl who’d been attacked by dogs was asked to leave a KFC in Jackson, MS, says her grandma, when an employee said her scars were scaring other customers.

“They just told us, ‘We have to ask you to leave because her face is disrupting our customers,’” Kelly Mullins, Victoria Wilcher’s grandmother, told WAPT-TV. “She understood exactly what they said.”

Mullins said she was driving her granddaughter home from the hospital in early June when they stopped at KFC for mashed potatoes.

The dog attack, Mullins explained, has made it difficult for her granddaughter to swallow.

“The right side of her face is paralyzed,” Mullins said. “She’s got a lot of surgeries to go through and she won’t even look in the mirror anymore. When we go to a store, she doesn’t even want to get out [of the car]. She’s 3 years old and she’s embarrassed about what she looks like.”

KFC says it’s investigating the incident.

    Some need to learn the art of thinking before speaking.

    suggestion to granma: rent a huge u-haul truck with a side entrance door. Have a professional trainer go around with you and retrieve all vicious dogs that have been impounded for attacks on humans until truck is full. Pull the truck up to the restaurant until the side door matches to the restaurant front door stand behind front door after opening, have handler open side door and chase all vicious dogs out of u-haul with intense cattle prod. Return u-haul and after several days, return to restaurant with granddaughter – I don’t think her scars will scare any of the workers enough for them to ask you to leave.

      PS: any rug ra-uh- beautiful little girl that’s up to going out with a grandparent after being attacked by an animal like that has got mega grits. Don’t think you’ve got a thing to worry about when she starts flowering out to a beautiful young southern belle! Don’t be surprised if one day the little Ms. MS becomes Ms USA and maybe even beat out a little Ms Thailand for Ms. Universe. With her eyes and that smile, I wouldn’t be betting against her, even if my own daughter-in-law took the knife away from my throat.

    It’s incredibly sad and intensely frustrating how preventable this attack was that tore this little girls face apart. Her fricken grandfather and his pit bulls. She had her face absolutely crushed in the jaws of two pits. I can’t even imagine what she’s been through already. Who would say such a thing when it’s apparent she’s been through a terrible experience already? The employee should have comped the meal, not further devastate an already devastated child.

    This infuriates me. Those jerks hurt that little girl at least as much as the dogs did. Physical wounds, doctors can heal, but scars on your spirit are worse. It’s up to KFC Central to heal this little kid, and they’d better come through will some damn major medicine in a hurry. Keep watching them to see what they do.
