This small mouse is now at large after it was spotted feasting on a tray of pastries at BreakTalk’s Changshou Road Metro station outlet in Putuo district on Saturday.
Staff at the bakery chain branch said they didn’t notice the mouse until a crowd of people gathered around gawking at it, according to one web user who posted the above image. When an employee opened the compartment door, the mouse jumped out and ran off.
BreadTalk Shanghai said yesterday that all stock on sale at the outlet has since been destroyed and the premises disinfected.
We’re aware that rodents are probably crawling around many an eating establishment in the city, but seeing it in picture proof makes it that much harder to swallow. Not as hard as the mouse ‘n’ veggie incident at that restaurant in the Xijiao Bailian Shopping Mall, though.
