KATY, TX (KHOU/CBS) - A Walmart customer who said he watched a bird peck away at food inside the store for weeks finally got management to take action by shooting video and photos of the animal.
Ranell Roy snapped pictures of the feathered visitor hanging out in the bread aisle. The next week he saw it again and shot video.
"When I hit the corner my first reaction was, 'really?'" Roy said. "It's been gaining some weight, definitely not a vegan."
Roy was sure after two weeks of bird watching at the store that it would be gone, but it wasn't. On his third visit he complained.
"There's an employee about 10 feet away stocking the meat on the shelves, so Ii tap her like, 'hey ma'am either Walmart has some really fresh product or there's a wild bird right behind you.'"
Walmart eventually shut down its 24-hour store, located the bird and removed it.
