Dead 4ft Shark Found On New York Subway Train

New York commuters are used to keeping their eyes open for anything fishy - but they got a shock on discovering a dead shark.

Passengers on the subway were asked to leave the train at Queens so a conductor could remove the carcass from under a row of seats.

A number of photos of the animal have been posted online including one with a cigarette in its mouth with a ticket and a can of energy drink.

Transit officials said they were aware of the photos but are making no effort to find the person who posted them as they had "better things to do".
