NEW YORK, August 8 (Itar-Tass) - New York subway passengers on Wednesday found a dead shark on a train. According to eyewitnesses, the shark was 1.2 metres long.
A passenger said that first he thought it was a toy, however, after seeing the teeth he realised that the shark was real. Due to strong fishy smell people who embarked the train did not linger in the carriage.
Having learned about the strange “passenger,” the train driver asked everybody to leave the train and drove to the depot. There employees of the subway administration disposed of the shark carcass.
The subway officials said they had no idea how the shark got into the train, however, do not intend to start the investigation.
It is worth noting that the shark has become a hit on the Internet. The smart passengers have taken pictures of the shark, posting them on the Internet with a cigarette in the mouth, next to a subway fare card and a can of energy drink.
Some Internet users thought it was a joke of the Discovery Channel for the promotion of its Shark Week cycle of documentaries that was launched on August 4. However, representatives of the Discovery Channel said it had nothing to do with the shark on the subway.
