The New York Police Department is trying to identify a dog owner involved in an NYC subway incident last week. According to one eyewitness who recorded the event and uploaded it on his social media account, the dog owner ordered his pitbull to attack a female commuter after the two of them were involved in an argument.
Pitbull Bit Woman’s Shoe and Refused to Let Go, NYC Subway Spokesperson Claims
Last week’s incident which, according to the authorities, took place on the Number 4 Subway Line, comes to prove that it’s never a dull moment when it comes to riding the subway.
Tahsyi King, the individual who recorded the whole encountered, declared that the whole incident started with a fellow commuter telling the dog owner to move his pitbull.
After boarding the subway, the canine, which stood next to a seated woman, kept hitting her in the leg with its tail. Frustrated, the woman asked the owner to move his pitbull, as she was getting annoyed by the dog’s movements.
When the individual refused to comply, the woman allegedly touched the pitbull. Irked by the woman’s gesture, the owner tells her to stop touching the dog.
Seconds later, King’s recording shows the man punching the woman several times in the face, while the pitbull took a bite of her shoe.
Even after the other passengers intervened, yelling at the dog to let go, while the K9 still clang to the woman’s shoe until his dog owner told him to let go.
As the passengers kept screaming to the dog owner that he’s going to jail or that his doing will going to be euthanized, the dog owner simply told them that the woman attacked him first and that he had every right to defend himself.
