Dog struck, killed on subway tracks
A 2-year-old pup was hit and killed by a subway train in East Harlem on Saturday after she broke free from her owner and jumped down on the tracks, police said.
Ava, a mixed breed dog, was taken into the 110th St. station near Lexington Ave. around 10 a.m. when she broke free and hopped onto the roadbed.
Cops responding to several 911 calls went into the tunnels to look for Hope, who was sprinting between the 110th and 125th St. stations, police said.
Cops were in the process of capturing the dog when she was hit by a southbound No. 6 train, officials said.
Officers tranquilized Hope handed her over to the Animal Care Centers of NYC.
The poor pup was suffering from a severe head injury and a low heart rate, so vets decided to euthanize her “due to the severity of her injuries,” the center said.
Animal Care Centers officials took paw prints of Ava to present to her owner.
The owner admitted that her pooch was not a service dog and was given a summons for bringing a dog into the train station without a carrier, police said.
