Dead Shark Rides NYC Subway!

| Filed under: SharkCrazzzzy

Dead Shark

Either Discovery is getting creative and cruel with a new viral campaign for Shark Week or some prankster wanted to celebrate Shark Week in their own weird way.

We're assuming the latter.

On a Queens-bound N train, passengers were surprised to find themselves riding alongside a dead sand shark!

No one saw how the shark ended up on the subway, but one witness who was possibly one of the first on the scene, said:

"I board a car that's not terribly full and as soon as I enter, a stench hits my nose. It's not the typical urine/trash smell, it's…fishy? I look down to the end of the car to see a dead shark on the floor. I think I stood there for a good minute just staring, thinking 'Is this for real?! Oh come ON, NYC!' One of my fellow passengers remarked 'I've been riding the subway for 15 years, and this is the weirdest thing I've seen. And I've seen EVERYTHING.' The train filled as we made our way to Astoria, every new passenger was getting excited about it. Once we got to Queensboro Plaza, an MTA employee made all of us move to another car."

So what happened to the shark? Where did it finally get off??

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) confirmed the shark was a real shark and said:

"The conductor on this N train reported the shark to the control center at 12:34 am. The conductor moved everyone out of the car at Queensboro Plaza, and when the train arrived at the end of the line at Ditmars Boulevard, a Train Service Supervisor placed the dead shark in a garbage bag and disposed of it in the trash. The Road Car Inspector at Ditmars made sure the car was clean and returned it to normal service."

So random! Though it is New York so we bet people honestly weren't all that surprised.

We're not too pleased a shark died for this whole prank, if that were the case! Let's keep the sharks on TV and in our oceans!
