Customer brought snakes-insects to McDonald’s, forced shut down

A customer brought snakes-insects to McDonald’s at Newhaven’s Drove Retail Park in East Sussex forcing it to shut down. The customer brought live insects to feed the pet snake forcing the temporary shutdown of McDonald’s.

McDonald’s remained closed for several hours after a customer brought snakes-insects to its food chain. A spokesperson for the food chain claims they performed a “thorough clean” after customers brought the snakes and insects. Pest control professionals are still monitoring the scene.

A spokesperson stated as soon they became aware, they shuttered the food chain and asked the customer to leave. Pest control professionals visited the food chain to do preventative checks and will continue to monitor.

However, this is not the first time, a food chain restaurant has encountered a snake. A 12-inch corn snake was discovered at a Middlesborough restaurant in 2019.

Afterward, a staff member adopted it before being collected by RSPCA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). They considered the corn snake abandoned because its owner did not come forward to claim it.

Recently, a staff member found a venomous snake hiding under a coffee machine in a seafood restaurant in January 2024. The discovered snake was a red-bellied black snake.

However, in August 2022, staff at McDonald’s in Bognor Regis, West Sussex surprisingly discovered a snake. They found a wandering 5ft Boa Constrictor (snake) near the entrance to the restaurant.

In addition, restaurant staff discovered an exceptionally deadly poisonous 6-foot snake beneath a restaurant terrace in eastern Australia. Snake catcher Stuart McKenzie of Sunshine Coast Snake Catchers stated he found the big eastern brown snake in an area where many people hang out.

According to Stuart, the snake was one of the largest eastern browns he would have seen in the area. This species can grow up to 7 feet, which is however uncommon.
