A woman biting and striking her dog shocked riders on the Toronto Transit Commission Subway in Canada. While some bystanders did not know what to do, one onlooker, Roxy Huang, recorded a video of the woman and her dog. In the video, a man says, “You’ve got to stop hitting your dog,” when the train was stopped and the emergency alarm went off. The woman responded with expletives. It is important to note that the woman did seem to be under some sort of influence.

Authorities answered the call, but only let the woman off with a warning since there were no visible signs of trauma to the dog.

Roxy Huang, the bystander who recorded the video, did not see authorities after leaving the subway so she uploaded the video on YouTube.

Many Torontonians recognized the subway at Line 2 at St. George Station and were appalled by the woman’s behavior to her dog and the fact that no one “did anything”.
