With all of the implements inside the store, it is a wonder that after the employee was bit, they would relive 'Blazing Saddles', and a shovel to the back of his head, would've been in order...remember ??

First the crazy broad helping herself to bacon at Piggly Wiggly in Athens, now this................

Apparently these thieves have a deep sense of entitlement to the merchandise they're pilfering and feel no sense of guilt or remorse.
