She also said that the duck lived with her pit bull and basically believes itself to be a dog. She then got off at the next stop, walking the duck as a small dog might be.
According to the city Department of Health, keeping a duck as a pet is illegal in New York City. of course, this doesn't come as a surprise as lots of things are illegal in New York.
