Customers at a Pinella's Park Chick-fil-A restaurant found themselves navigating past animal rights protesters wearing masks, covered in fake blood and clutching butcher knives Tuesday as they attempted to order food.
One customer at the fast food restaurant captured the chaos on video.

Protesters wearing chicken and horse masks lay on the tile floors, while others pretended to stab them with bloody knives. Others lofted signs, and some screamed, "Animal killers!"
While customers looked on, yelling for the demonstrators to leave, some tried to shield their children from the confrontation.
Restaurant managers attempted to quell the disturbance.
Pinellas Park police were called but by the time they arrived all the protesters had fled.
No arrests have been made and it's unclear what group was responsible for the flash protest.
