From the NY Post:
It was just looking for a new squeeze.
Emergency Service cop Michael D'Alessandro carefully holds up a monstrous snake found in a Queens park yesterday.
The boa constrictor was spotted on a bridge in Springfield Park near 46th Avenue and Springfield Boulevard.
"I've seen strange creatures around here, but that's scary," said parkgoer Lawrence Emerson, 37.
Emergency Service officers were called in to remove the scaly giant at around 12:30 p.m. Stuffed in a Parks Department laundry bag, it was handed over to a local veterinarian.
