On Wednesday morning, San Francisco commuters were met with quite the surprise.
Public transit riders on their way to work experienced major system-wide train delays at the height of rush hour — all because an inquisitive pup had taken to the elevated BART tracks, zipping past trains and confused passengers.
Just after 8 a.m., the official BART Twitter account announced the doggy disruption near the Coliseum station in Oakland. No one knew how the young pit bull managed to climb onto the tracks, but it was clear that he showed no interest in coming down.
While some delayed riders were justifiably angry with the pup, many commuters posted their concerns for the dog’s safety on Twitter — along with plenty of pictures.
BART assured commuters they would catch the pup and save him from getting run over, though the former would prove to be much more difficult than they thought.
