Stray Dogs In Moscow Travel By Train For Food

Anyone who's ever doubted the intelligence and resourcefulness of dogs needs to only take a look at the Russian capital of Moscow to see the truth. In addition to being home to the Kremlin, Moscow houses upwards of 35,000 stray dogs.

But it's what these dogs have learned to do that's truly remarkable… and it's baffling animal researchers.

"In Moscow, there are all sorts of stray dogs, but… there are no stupid dogs," Dr. Andrey Poyarkov told ABC.

That must be true, as the dogs of Moscow's streets have learned to… ride public transit.



For commuters in the Russian capital, it isn't all that uncommon to share a seat with a dog.




The dogs have mastered the massive subway system, hustle and bustle included, and use it to travel to the most fertile "hunting" ground in the center of the city.




Researchers say that the dog's use of the transit system is evidence of canis familiaris' possession of what we call flexible open-ended reasoning and conscious thought.




The dogs have also been seen obeying traffic signals and employing a variety of tactics to procure food from humans.




The dogs even try and scare people carrying food by barking, with the hope that the startled person will drop their food.




This one above here is glowing with wisdom. It must be true!
