Video: Man hugging, kissing chicken on NYC subway

A video posted online that shows a man kissing and snuggling a live chicken aboard the New York City subway has viewers giggling and the city transit agency launching an investigation.
The subway rider who took the video said Thursday that it was one of those New York moments she felt compelled to record.
Kylie Kaiser, a 27-year-old architect, and two friends boarded a Manhattan train at around 7 p.m. Tuesday when they saw the man.
"He was on his back, rolling from side to side, kissing, hugging and lifting the chicken up in the air," she said.
She said the man was oblivious to everything around him and didn't respond to onlookers.
"It was definitely an only-in-New-York situation," said Kaiser, who moved to the city about three years ago from a town in Tennessee.
Some passengers look on and laugh, while others seem to be hustling out of his way toward the far end of the car.
Kaiser said the man looked like he was homeless because he had a shopping cart next to him full of cans and was wearing a shirt with an MTA patch that "looked like he had found it somewhere."
NYC Transit spokesman Charles Seaton said no passengers reported the incident. He said only service animals (such as guide dogs for the blind) and animals in carriers are permitted in the subway system.
Kaiser took the video and photos with her Blackberry and posted them on her blog. The post was picked up by Gothamist, a local blog network, YouTube and others.
"I knew it would be a story people would want to hear," she said.
