Video: Man playing with chicken on NYC subway

NEW YORK (AP) — NYC Transit is investigating an Internet video that shows a man playing with a live chicken aboard a subway.

Spokesman Charles Seaton said Thursday it also was looking into whether the Tuesday incident on the uptown No. 6 train was real.

He said no passengers reported it.

The video shows the man hugging and kissing the chicken as passengers look on and laugh.

The video was posted to a rider's blog and later picked up by the Gothamist, a blog operator.

The blogger wrote the man appeared to be homeless and oblivious to his surroundings.

Seaton said only service animals and those in containers are permitted in the subway system.
