Peter Wang and his wife were cleaning a couch in their new apartment, expecting to find some loose change or an old french fry. Instead, they found a 3-foot python.
According to NBC 4 New York, the Long Island couple left the large, nonvenomous snake right where it was and called animal control. When authorities arrived, the python was removed without incident.
SPCA officials believe the snake belonged to the tenant who had moved out, and since there is no law against owning one, no charges will be filed.
