Commuters in New York are accustomed to dealing with filthy subway stations and even rat infestations. However, they were still taken aback to find a dead shark under a seat.
One commuter, Mary, who thought that she had seen it all, recalled the incident and 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've been riding the subway for 15 years, and this is the weirdest thing I've seen.”
A conductor moved the passengers into different carriages and the shark was disposed of. However, it is still not clear how the shark got on the subway in the first place.
Meanwhile, the Discovery Channel said they and Shark Week have nothing to do with it. "Shark Week is all about conservation, so it deeply saddens us that someone would think that this was funny or in any way connected to our celebration of sharks," a spokesman said.
