In what has been described as an abusive argument, a dog bit a woman’s foot on the NYC Number 4 subway train in Manhattan. The New York City police are searching for the owner of the dog.
According to the Daily News, witnesses stated the woman asked the owner to move his dog when it accidentally bumped her on a seat. The woman, not waiting for the dog’s owner to respond, repeatedly pushed the dog off the seat near her. The man then pushed the woman. When the woman hit the man back, the protective dog responded and bit into the woman’s sneaker.
The video shows the crowd yelling as the dog refused to let go. The woman took off her sneaker and the dog finally released it. The man and dog left. An eyewitness during the entire situation posted the video on his Facebook:
#Dog was NOT VICIOUS PRIOR.. ONLY UNTIL AFTER THE FIGHT STARTED”
The New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority pet dogs must be in a carrier. Leashed service and emotional support animals are allowed to ride the subway with their owners with no restrictions. Most small dog owners ride with their pets in portable carriers. Those owning medium sized dogs and large dogs have become more creative, but why not follow the rules and avoid situations like this?
