A dog has his day on Metro . . .
This video of what appears to be a beagle checking out a Metro train called to mind several reports from earlier in the year of animals of various types wandering around subways around the world.
The Financial Times reported on a phenomena in Moscow where dogs routinely wander the subway system, apparently even patiently waiting for trains on platforms. There is even a Web site devoted to the dogs of the subway system.
"Every so often, you would see [a stray dog] waiting on a metro platform," the Financial Times report says. "When the train pulled up, the dog would step in, scramble up to lie on a seat or sit on the floor if the carriage was crowded, and then exit a few stops later."
And Britain bid adieu to a commuting cat in January, who became a celebrity on local buses. Casper apparently would wait in line, climb aboard a local bus and spend the day riding around before returning home.
