Loose Kittens Halt Service On 2 NYC Subway Lines
NEW YORK, (UPI) – Service was halted for about an hour Thursday on two New York City subway lines while police searched for two loose kittens in a Brooklyn station.
The wandering kittens were spotted on the tracks at the open-air Church Avenue station in the Flatbush neighborhood just after 11 a.m., NY1 reported. The Metropolitan Transit Authority cut power on the B and Q lines, stopping service to Brighton Beach.
By the time police began their search, the kittens had disappeared. They were eventually found under the third rail, which carries electricity for the trains.
Some area residents told The Gothamist the kittens had been at the station and as far away as Newkirk Plaza, four local stops down the line.
