New Yorkers are known for their ingenuity.
Take for example a transit rule that prevents dogs — other than service animals — from riding the subway unless they are in a bag.
“No person may bring any animal on or into any conveyance or facility unless enclosed in a container and carried in a manner which would not annoy other passengers,” the rule says.
One imagines Paris Hilton-sized purse pooches. The smaller the pup, the more smoothly the subway will go, right?
Instead, riders are stuffing their big dogs into big bags to make the cut.
