The police were called to a Woodside warehouse Tuesday after receiving a report that there was a “vicious animal.”
The animal, which was a corn snake, was scooped up by the police from the first floor of 51-26 59th Street at about 10 am, police said. No one was injured, nor the snake.
Deputy Inspector John Travaglia said that the snake was likely a pet that escaped and that it was relocated to Animal Control in Manhattan. He said that Animal Control in Manhattan is looking to find the owner of the non-poisonous snake or someone to adopt it.
The snake’s capture, which took place inside the import-export company XD Trading, was tweeted out by the 108 precinct yesterday afternoon.
“It caught the attention of a lot of people and many people were talking about it,” Travaglia said.
