The father said he discovered a dead rodent in the collard greens as he was preparing to cook them Sunday.

“I’m pulling all the leaves out of the stem and as I’m pulling them out one by one, I start noticing that some of the leaves are bitten. So I start noticing and keep pulling them out and then I see it, there was a mouse right there,” explained Pulgarin.

He said he snapped a photo of the dead rodent after making the discovery. He said he then disposed of the mouse and the collard greens.
