BROOKLYN NEW YORK — New Yorkers are thought of to be pretty tough, especially dealing with gritty subway stations day in and out.  But one pest brought out a visceral reaction among commuters Monday morning.

A rat living in the subway tunnel happened to wander onto a “A” train heading downtown, and passengers were far from pleased.

In the above video posted to YouTube, riders are seen screaming and standing on seats as the rat scurries around the car.

“A usually boring Monday morning commute to work [in] Brooklyn was stirred up by this little guy,” Janais Kader wrote in the description of the video.

“Someone getting off the train was screaming ‘RAT on the train!’ But by the time everyone realized what was happening, the doors closed and the train entered the tunnel.”
