I'm sure that cop shot himself in the foot at sometime during his career, and if he didn't, he deserved to!

Noel, do you recall what the New Haven's policy towards dogs aboard was?

It's not good to just unless you were in his shoes. Maybe he saw something no one else did, or maybe he was an ***hole. It all comes out in the end. What goes around comes around.

I would have to assume that since the incident was related by Mr. Weaver, the Officer was either antsy about being so close to the third rail that he took the easy way out, or he just couldn't care less.

Mr. Weaver, if you see this, when the officer approached your train, had MO de-energized the third rail?

With regard to the dog incident on my train, the third rail was not de-
energized, the cop shot the dog from the front end of the train and it was
in the area of 140th Street.
The New Haven allowed small dogs and cats in a "carrying case" but not
just loose. Pullman allowed them in private rooms under certain
conditions and large dogs on a leash and with a muzzle could ride in
baggage cars.

I've met a couple of very friendly dogs on Metro-North trains myself. Thanks for discussing a subject I always meant to ask about but didn't remember to. ^^;
