NYC Subway Banned Dogs Unless They Fit In a Bag, So Owners Got Creative

The rules are clear when it comes to carrying animals on the New York City subway: “No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container.” But the rules say nothing about the size of the animal, and as you can see from this picture, some people got really creative in order to avoid a fine.

    If I understood it right, the main idea of this stupid law is that the dog might annoy other passengers. How about rats on the platform in NYC subway? Are they not annoy the passengers ??? I feel like dog owners are being discriminated. It is so weird because America always care about all categories and groups of people (LGBT, different rases, disabled people, veterans). But not the dog owners. I can not even move around the city and enter anywhere because I am with a dog.

    Omg New York. Really. This is a ridiculous law. With all the rats and all homeless that eat abs sleep there should have laws to them too.
