A man in the UK was so unhappy about not being able to procure chicken from his favorite restaurant, KFC, he decided to call the police. The Greater Manchester Police released a 911 recording that features a caller who wanted to voice his complaints that KFC was closed.

"I don't know how you feel about this but KFC is closed and I'm entirely not happy," the caller tells the operator. "I have to go to Burger King now." The operator kindly refers him to another number for the complaint. Police in the UK got so many calls like this they were forced to issue a public notice for people <a href="https://thegoldwater.com/news/19351-UK-Police-Please-Do-Not-Contact-Us-About-The-KFC-Crisis">not to call them about the KFC crisis.</a>
The restaurant chain recently had troubling keeping hundreds of stores upon due to a chicken shortage. KFC has announced a return to the delivery contractor they previously used in order to supply chicken to 350 stores after a shortage in the meat forced hundreds of KFC's to close.
The company who was responsible for delivering the chicken during the failure has now lost their contract. The shortage of chicken was due to issues with DHL 's delivery hub which affected hundreds of KFC locations.

The new contract holder is Bidvest Logistics, a company previously contracted by the chicken restaurant chain. DHL revealed plans in November to manage the supply and distribution of food products and packaging for more than 850 KFC locations with the help of another company called QSL.
After DHL failed to meet delivery requirements and was replaced, Bidvest said it was "delighted" to confirm it had signed a new long-term contract with KFCs in UK and Ireland. They will be tasked with supplying massive amounts of chicken to 350 restaurants across northern England and Wales.
