There are a number of laws in place to keep the New York City subway system clean and safe for its patrons. One such rule says: “No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container.”
Those found breaking this rule may face a hefty fine. Yet, many animal owners simply refuse to shell out large sums in order to travel through the city via taxi or make a potentially huge trip on foot. This leaves them with no option but to find a way to transport their animals in some sort of container.
Most New Yorkers would scoff at the idea of carrying around a pet carrier all day. That is why some clever subway riders found a way around this strict rule. CBS news producer Alex Romano recently made this technique famous when he snapped a photo of a man on the subway carrying his large husky dog in a tote bag!
This bizarre scene has gone viral, causing others to post similar incidents to social media. Now the internet is abuzz with animal lovers praising the innovation of these New York pet owners to go above and beyond for their furry friends while avoiding a potential fine.
