Dead shark is found in NYC subway car, disposed ofAugust 7, 2013 @ 10:42 am
NEW YORK (AP) - Did a fan of "Shark Week" get carried away?
New York City's transit authority says a conductor found a small dead shark aboard a subway train in Queens on Wednesday.
The conductor asked passengers to leave the car and closed it off. The train continued to the end of the line, and then a supervisor placed the shark in a garbage bag and put it in the trash.
Photos on the blog Gothamist depict the shark on the subway. It appears to be about 4 feet long, has a cigarette in its mouth with a fare card and Red Bull can nearby.
Transit officials say they were aware of the photos but are making no effort to find the person who posted them. The transit authority says it has "better things to do."
