People have been counting down the days before Chick-fil-A opens its doors in Toronto. But things have taken something of a turn after a video posted on social media on Wednesday showed a Chick-fil-A Toronto mouse sighting. The chain's first Canadian location opens in just two days' time, on Friday, Sept. 6.

A user named Spaghettizetti from Instagram shared these videos of the furry intruder, which was spotted inside the soon-to-open Yonge and Bloor location in downtown Toronto.

In the video, you can clearly see the mouse scurrying around the restaurant, before hiding underneath the window ledge. 

"I walked the new Chick-fil-A store, which had some sort of corporate opening party earlier that night, and saw this poor lil' distressed guy scurrying about," says Spaghettizetti.

Now, this isn't the first time a mouse has been spotted inside a Toronto food joint and it surely won't be the last. However, a rodent showing up before the restaurant has even opened is less common, and is likely to be pretty concerning to many potential customers.

And sure enough, people on Reddit had a couple of things to say about this pest-ky issue.

The Toronto-based exterminators, theexterminators.ca, state that "spotting even a single rodent should cause you to take immediate action."

This alone could potentially cause some issues before opening day as mice are a safety hazard.

But this didn't stop some people from making a couple of jokes on the matter.

Chick-fil-A hasn't issued a statement as of yet.

With the word of protests looming over the location's opening day, one Reddit user even suggests the mouse might have been planted.

One user responded to say they "wouldn't be surprised considering they're not even serving food yet and people have planned protests."

Whatever you think of Chick-fil-A and it's expansion into Canada, you can't deny that there's plenty to talk about.
