Long Island couple finds 3-foot python in couchJune 17, 2014 @ 6:20 am
HOLBROOK, N.Y. (AP) -- Officials on Long Island say a couple was startled when they discovered a 3-foot-long python in a couch.
The Suffolk County SPCA says Peter Wang and his wife were cleaning a basement apartment that had just recently been vacated when the wife removed one of the cushions from the couch and saw the snake.
Wang called the Town of Brookhaven Holtsville Ecology Center, which notified the SPCA.
The SPCA says the non-venomous Ball Python belonged to a former tenant and was going to be cared for by an upstairs tenant when it got loose. Ball Pythons are legal to own. No charges have been filed.
