Green Bay Packers player Jared Cook got an unpleasant surprise on a recent trip to Buffalo Wild Wings.
On Friday, Cook tweeted that earlier this week he found a chicken head in his meal at the sports bar chain.
“How Sway? How?” the NFL player tweeted, posting a disturbing photo of the chicken’s head. According to another tweet from Cook, the tongue, eyes, and beak of the bird were all present… with extra seasoning.

Cook’s tweet had been retweeted more than 4,000 times by Friday afternoon, garnering dozens of disgusted responses on social media.
Forget clowns…this to me is way more scary!

Buffalo Wild Wings also responded to Cook, saying that the chain was looking into the issue.
This is something we take very seriously, and we are looking into it. We’re getting in touch with you right now to learn more.

“Buffalo Wild Wings takes food preparation, service and quality extremely seriously and we are looking into this situation,” the company said in a statement to Business Insider.
Unfortunately, finding unexpected animal parts in food at restaurant chains is not uncommon. Occasionally, organs are mistakenly not removed during the food preparation process.
However, usually in these instances, the person who finds a stray animal part isn’t an NFL player with more than 32,000 Twitter followers.
