A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said that there was a real shark on a subway train in New York City.
Photos began circulating on the internet this morning of a dead shark on a subway train.
The shark was reported to the control center at 12:34 a.m. on August 7 by the train conductor, who moved everyone out of the car, and put the shark in a garbage bag and threw it away when the train arrived at the end of the line.
The shark was on a N train.
“Yes, folks this morning we removed a shark from an N train at Ditmars Blvd…..and no, we’re not investigating how it got there,” said MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz.
