NEW YORK, April 9 (UPI) -- Commuters on the A train going downtown on the New York subway freaked out when they saw a rat in the train car.

The furry fiend crawled into the car when the doors opened. Riders didn't notice the sewer rat until the doors had closed and they were in the tunnel. Acting as if it were Godzilla instead of a small rodent, riders jumped on their seats and screamed.

New York City has millions of rats scurrying the streets, subways, and even bakeries, but apparently even the toughest of New Yorkers are still terrified of them.
