A Woolworths shopper has fallen victim to some nasty online critics after boasting about scoring several cooked hot chickens for a bargain price.

The consumer took to Facebook on the weekend after taking home four of the supermarket's "country style" hot roast chickens for just $20.

"Winner winner chicken dinner for my family and my pampered doggo," the woman excitedly announced to members of a markdown appreciation group.

Despite revealing there were still 10 chickens available after she took her share, some members took the opportunity to call her actions "greedy".

"Some people takes offence that she may be greedy and should save some for others," one comment to her post read.

Others expressed concern for the health of her dog due to potential health complications that could arise if it ate dry bones from the chicken.

One person wrote that they knew of a dog which died because a neighbour threw chicken carcasses over the fence.

Another hit back saying one of her dogs ate chicken with its bones removed regularly and lived to age 19.

People online defend Woolworths shopper

Many came to the defence of the shopper, arguing she was completely within her right to take as many bargain chickens as she pleased.

"I don’t know why people judge. It’s put on sale for a quick sale for anyone," one comment read.

"If one person wants to buy every single one left then good on them! It’s all about right place at the right time. It’s actually not our responsibility to save things for others in a supermarket," another said.

The shopper had already indicated she wasn't going to pay attention to naysayers, writing in her post, "Yes, there were another 10 chooks left - Also who are you to judge!".
