A man was recently spotted on a crowded subway train hawking six week old puppies out of a bag. The salesman pointed out that these were a steal for $250 to $300, because they often command twice that amount.
The man waves the puppies around to attract buyers before giving his sales pitch. Apparently he had five puppies, but the sixth was “smothered”, presumably at the bottom of the bag he keeps them in.
If this practice is legal in the state of New York (we’re still trying to get an answer to that question) something needs to change.
