Watch This Tiny Mouse Terrify Straphangers on the New York City Subway

We New Yorkers like to think of ourselves as tough, but when a rodent pops up on the subway, even a small one, people start screaming! Watch this tiny mouse comically terrify an E train subway car full of straphangers.

A commuter caught the mouse mania on his phone after he got on the rain at Court Square during rush hour Wednesday night. He thought it was a rat at first based on the shouts of panicked riders. "I expected a rat," Augustus Balasubramaniam said. "But the small was a bit of a relief really." Most of the riders in the E train car actually got off at Roosevelt Avenue and switched to new cars, Balasubramaniam said. The people in the video are the "brave ones" who stayed behind - even though some of them stood on seats to keep their distance from the mouse, according to Balasubramaniam.
