Dead Shark Winds Up on NYC Subway


sharkTalk about something fishy.

Was it a marketing ploy to highlight the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week or just a sad incident that a shark wound up dead on the New York City subway?

Riders of the N train found the shark late last night, but it’s not clear how it got on the train in the first place.

The MTA released a tongue-in-cheek statement confirming that the shark was real and that sharks are handled by “Shark Maintainer Is, or if none are available on that shift, then by Aquatic Mammal Handler IIs.”
