She asked a man to move his pit bull, witnesses say

The Bus Action Plan proposed by NYC Transit

The Bus Action Plan proposed by NYC Transit

The footage shows the pit bull latching onto the woman's shoe and did not let go until the shoe came off. The pet owner struggled to get the dog off the woman by pulling it by its collar.

A Metropolitan Transit Authority employee helps a commuter transfer from Long Island railroad service to a New York City subway at the Barclays Center subway station on July 10, 2017 in New York City.

Its owner wrestled the animal away, before throwing the item of clothing back at her.

On Friday, a straphanger was standing on the 4 train that afternoon when the dog, which was on its owner's leash, clamped down on the rider's foot and would not let go.

But the woman, who had already been sitting in an a nearby seat, didn't appreciate having the pit bull so close to her, Kyng said.

Another witness, Denise Leon, told CBS New York that the situation escalated when the woman attempted to shove the dog off the seat. Kyng didn't have a chance to ask the woman who was attacked if she was OK but said the woman was able to walk afterward.

The woman pushed the dog off the seat and its owner picked him back up.

"She pushes it, 'What is this dog doing on the chair?' He was like, 'Yo!"

"You should've had your dog in a bag, kennel, muzzle". As the train pulled into the Wall Street stop, the owner can be seen leaving with his pit bull. Eyewitness News is told the conductor eventually came into the vehicle to assist the female passenger. A spokesperson says the incident is a "clear violation" of their regulations. Afterward, the owner throws the shoe towards the other passengers before exiting the train at the Wall Street Station. When room opened up across the aisle, I'm told the man sat down and put his dog on the seat.

In a statement, the MTA said non-service animals should always be kept inside containers on subways.
