A five-foot-long python was found and captured at a New York City gas station.
The snake was spotted near some garbage at the East 161st Street business in the Melrose section of the Bronx on Tuesday.
Police were able to get it into a box. The snake will be checked over at an East Harlem animal shelter and then taken to a habitat facility far from the Bronx.
Authorities believe the snake is an abandoned pet.
