Dead Shark Found in NYC Subway Car

NEW YORK (AP) -

New York City’s transit authority is mystified how a small dead shark was discovered by a conductor aboard a subway train in Queens 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.

From photos posted by riders, the shark 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 they have “better things to do” than find out who took the images.
