"Although a quarter century ago C.H.U.D.s were publicly considered little more than an urban legend, a number of eyewitness accounts and a growing amount of physical evidence quietly convinced most people that they were much more than that. Dozens died or simply vanished underground—some yanked right off the street, through manholes."
"For the last 15 years, little has been heard about the C.H.U.D.s. There have been few sightings, and incidents ("accidents," "crimes," etc.) in the subways and the sewers could be easily explained. Then, in the spring of 2001, the first evidence appeared that a new generation of C.H.U.D.s had arisen. I was riding a downtown train early one Wednesday evening while two transit officers stood near me, talking shop.
"Walking down the tracks at Delancey," one of them said, "you know where they open up?" The other cop nodded. "Well, over to the left, there's a hole in the wall. That's where they hide."
It was immediately clear to me that he wasn't talking about rats, albino alligators or track workers. There was something in his voice, an undercurrent of fear, that made it obvious that something evil was down there. And although the word "C.H.U.D" came to mind, I dismissed it. After all, the MTA had killed them all off in 1982.
But over the next four years, as the evidence began to mount once again, it became apparent that the cops hadn't been quite as thorough as they thought. What's more, these new C.H.U.D.s were smarter than the old breed."

Here's an even scarier thought. Bigfoot is a mammal. And therefore susceptable to rabies. Didn't Hollywood do a movie about this?

I love it when articles start out with claims of " a growing amount of physical evidence" and then present....nothing. I don't think that the article is meant to be taken seriously tho.
I was actually unaware that CHUDS existed outside of the movie of that name, even in myth!

This sounds like somebody has read "The Mole People: Life In The Tunnels Beneath New York City" one too many times.
From the source article:
You may not like or trust city officials, their methods, denials and their obvious lies, but we have no choice but to stand with them on this. And when the day comes that you hear that the entire subway system is being shut down for 24 hours or more, don't panic. Just stay home, close your windows, and hope for the best. This is a fight that will determine the future, and possibly the very existence, of New York City.

The author is a woman named Jennifer Toth. The book she wrote is called "The Mole People: Life In The Tunnels Beneath New York City". Sadly for her, much of her work in the tunnels is being discredited. Tunnel dwellers themselves have disputed her findings and she has been challenged by her seeming inability to remember simple details concerning specific locations.
The book is pretty entertaining, but take it with a grain of salt. It has probably been over-dramatised.
Thanks Jeremiah I feel kinda stupid now for it being the same author...but heh, oh well.
