KFC Pit Bull Girl Story

KFC is calling BS on  the "pit bull girl" who was allegedly turned away from one of its franchises because customers were grossed out by her bite wounds.

KFC claims there have now been 2 investigations -- one internal and one independent -- and both show "no evidence" such an incident ever occurred at the Jackson Mississippi franchise.

3-year-old Victoria Welcher's family claims the girl was kicked out because employees felt her facial wounds from the dog attack were upsetting customers.

KFC says it will still honor its $30,000 donation to assist Victoria's family in paying her medical bills. 

So even if the claim was phony ... it worked.

KFC should press charges against the parents and if they really want to go through with the donation it should be put in a trust and only used to pay medical expenses directly. Even better would be to donate it to a legitimate children's charity.

I am so glad her little face is destroyed, she deserves every ounce of suffering. It was her families own pit bulls that did it any ways. After the attack the family fought to keep the dogs.

I honestly wanted to believe that no one would talk about a disfigured child when I first heard this story but I see it all the time when disabled kids get made fun of so this story is not so far fetched, the fact that they didn't make fun of her restored my faith in humanity until they said the grandma was the mastermind. On one hand I don't think kfc should foot her medical bills because that's wrong but then again she's a child and it's not her fault that her grandma is evil.

I'm just curious did the little girl ever get interviewed and if she did had she ever talked about the incident?

They have already managed to bilk people out of over $130,000, not including the free reconstructive surgery promised by a few plastic surgeons.
