This wasn't the smartest choice of pet

Pet Python Causes Concern in Queens Apartment

NEW YORK (AP) -- A man staying at a friend's apartment in Queens was charged with unlawful possession of a wild animal after police arrived at the scene to capture a seven-foot python.

Police said the man called authorities Thursday evening, worried that the snake would escape the apartment, where he was staying while his friend is overseas.

The animal was caught and turned over to Animal Care and Control. Neighbors had no idea the snake was there.
