Shanghai commuters were in for a shock last week when a bucket full of live eels got knocked over on the subway. The incident occurred during rush hour on Shanghai Metro's Line 1, creating a scene that looked like it came straight out of a horror movie.

However, one of the more surprising things about the photo, besides the fact that an uncovered bucket of eels was allowed on the subway, is the lack of panic regarding the slithering eels. Shanghai commuters were completely unfazed! Then again, this isn't the first time strange items were brought on a Chinese subway.

You also have to feel kind of bad for owner of the eels — talk about having a bad day! I guess the moral of the story is never take live eels on the subway, especially if they are in an uncovered bucket...

What would you do if you were on this subway car? Please share your thoughts below!
