Every New Yorker’s nightmare came true on Wednesday when a rodent was caught on camera hanging out near the cold cuts at a beloved Queens bagel shop.

In two videos posted by Facebook user Jason Clohessy, a rodent is seen scampering inside a glass display case filled with cold cuts and drinks purportedly at Bagel Oasis. The Fresh Meadows deli, located at 183-12 Horace Harding Expwy., has been around since 1961 and makes its bagels in house.

The video was posted on June 14 and has racked up more than 2,000 shares since then. Bagel Oasis is a popular spot for students who attend the nearby Francis Lewis High School. In addition to bagels, it serves specialty sandwiches and chicken cutlet specials.

When QNS reached out to the deli, an employee said the establishment had “no comment.”

Bagel Oasis has been ranked as one of the best places to get bagels in the city by USA Today  and GQ.

A spokesperson for the Department of Health said the shop is under the jurisdiction of New York State NY State Agriculture and Markets and that they have notified the agency.

“We treat rodent complaints seriously,” the spokesperson said. “We will send an inspector to the business to investigate.”
