NEW YORK (AP) — A former chairman of the Metropolitan Transit Authority and New York City mayoral hopeful says he wouldn't have stopped the subway because two lost kittens were scrambling along the tracks.
A spokesman for Joe Lhota (LOH'-tuh) tells the New York Post (http://bit.ly/1965AnP ) Friday the candidate doesn't think shutting down subway service for lost cats is appropriate. But he said Lhota believes it wouldn't be the mayor's decision in any case.
On Thursday, the MTA cut power on two Brooklyn subway lines for more than an hour as the two pets scurried around the tracks. The furry felines were finally rescued about seven hours later.
Officials say kittens Arthur and August are being treated in a shelter.
Other mayoral hopefuls tell the paper they would've stopped the trains.
