(June 16, 2014) The corporate parent of the KFC chain says it's looking into allegations that an employee of one of its restaurants asked a 3-year-old to leave because the facial injuries she received in a pit bull attack disturbed other diners.
The incident was described on "Victoria's Victories," a Facebook page that follows Victoria Wilcher's recovery from the pit bull attack in April that left the girl with facial scars and an injury that requires her to wear an eye patch.
Her mother says when she took the young girl to a KFC in Jackson, Miss., recently, a worker told her that her daughter had to leave because her face was upsetting other eaters.
KFC said it was sorry and contributed $30,000 toward the girl's medical bills.
