In January, an e-mail began popping up in inboxes claiming A LOCAL RESTAURANT WAS SERVING RATS, MICE, KITTENS, PUPPIES AND A LARGE FROZEN HAWK. While the restaurant wasnt named, an early version of the e-mail included a map showing it to be a certain Chinese restaurant near Perimeter Mall. Accompanying the e-mail were four pictures of skinned and shrink-wrapped rats and mice. Soon, though, the Fulton County Health and Wellness Department found that the e-mail was a hoax. (Incidentally, the restaurant in question had excellent health records.) The photos turned out to be pictures of prepackaged food for snakes.
