Crab Spotted Riding CTA Train In Chicago

As Chicago residents were taking the train to work, they were surprised by a special passenger taking up a seat. Someone had brought a crab on board. Of course, immediately people started posting videos and pictures on social media. The sea creature went viral.

No one knows where the crab came from or what happened to it but the animal didn't seem to mind the ride or attention. I guess that's a good way to get a whole row of seats to yourself.

According to nbcchicago.com,

We all know commutes can make or break a day, but some riders were stuck with one very crabby passenger on a Chicago Transit Authority train -- literally.


It would appear openly carrying a crab onto a CTA train does, however, violate the agency's code of conduct.
