Rat takes the E train

MYFOXNY.COM - If you live in New York you expect to see a rat or two, especially in the subways but they generally don't become part of the commute.

A rat decided to hop aboard an E train in Manhattan on Monday, causing quite a commotion.

Ivan Aguilar says the rat got on the train at the 50th Street Stop at 8th Avenue.

Aguilar, who goes by DJ Fresh , says people on the train didn't want to have anything to do with the rat so they were screaming and jumping on the seats.

Aguilar grabbed a picture of the rat and sent it in to MyFoxNY.com. He joked that the rat was too lazy to walk.

That poor little field mouse was more scared of them that they were of it. Are they kidding calling that tiny thing a rat!

What are they supposed to do..arrest it? This really is the land of the numb.

BTW: We got -real- rats here on the east side 4-5-6 stations and tons out at Continental Ave (F.H.).

If you want rats au natural take a night walk along east 80th st bet 5th Ave and Park ave.

Imagine. A politician using the subway just like the rest of us, and not begging for money or selling batteries!

You mean settling for a mayor who begs his development buddies to rape and pillage our neighborhoods and sells out the people of NYC? I'll take the beggars and vendors, thank you.

No big story, Bloomberg takes the train everyday.

You know, I'd prefer riding the subway with this little mouse than most of subway riders in NYC. Face it, people here have no manners. They stuff food in their mouths, scream on cell phones, the teenagers act like animals, and the majority of people litter the subway with trash even though a trash can is a few steps away. Then, we all act surprised that a mouse is attracted to the inside of the train. Where there is trash there will be rodents. Where ther are lazy dirty people that don't care about their enviroment, there will be trash.

I'd rather ride with that rat than some of the scum that rides the trains.

I must say - the main thing that I noticed is that the train floor looked very clean. Thumbs up to the MTA!

I have a finger for the MTA as well. It's not a thumb...
