Budget cuts in New York City could mean more rats.

That's the warning from Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer.

He says the mayor's budget could cut pest control workers by 70%.

Stringer's warning comes as new video surfaced Tuesday of a rat scaring riders on the A train.

You can hear people screaming and jumping on seats as a large rat scurries around the train car.

The rat managed to find its way out when the door opened at the next stop.
