Stray Dogs in Moscow Take the Metro to Work

According to and a number of other Web sites you've never heard of, biology professor Andrew Poyarkov said he had seen several dogs unaccompanied on the Moscow's metro system, something people have been noticing for at least a year. There's actually a website devoted to pictures of stray dogs on the metro.

Dr. Poyarkov believes these dogs aren't just accidentally roaming into the subway, however. He believes the dogs are going to work. He claims the dogs travel into the city center, where they can more easily find food, each morning and travel back to where they live each evening.

What kind of world do we live in, where dogs have to commute?



Oh, Ern, what a beautiful quotation is the last sentence!

But a goodie. =)

Actually, this has been one of the strangest stories in Moscow for over a decade.

The introduction of an actual scientific study is the coolest bit.
