NYPD discovers unharmed 5-foot boa constrictor in Upper West Side apartment

According to the NYPD, they discovered a boa-constrictor snake in a basement apartment situated on the Upper West Side last Wednesday.

At 8 a.m., police officers were summoned to an apartment located at 140 West 87th Street, where they stumbled upon a 5-foot long reptile inside the kitchen sink.

The ASPCA took custody of the snake after it was removed from an outdoor fence.

The New York Police Department, commonly known as NYPD, is the primary law enforcement agency responsible for maintaining law and order in New York City.

A witness reported to the authorities that they had seen the snake entering the basement apartment within the building.

The ownership of the snake and its origin remains unknown.

According to the Animal Care Centers of NYC, owning a Boa constrictor in New York City is considered illegal.

A new home has been found for the snake outside of New York City, where it will be taken care of by a foster guardian.
