A large snake was discovered under a parked car in Flushing on June 18.

A snake found on a Flushing street this Sunday caused a bit of hiss-teria before it was wrangled by cops and brought to a local shelter, police said.

On June 18 at around 1:52 p.m., cops responded to a 911 call at 157th Street and Northern Boulevard from a passerby who spotted the reptile, law enforcement sources said. Upon arrival, cops discovered a 5-foot-long snake underneath a parked vehicle at the location.

Officers from the 109th Precinct were able to place the snake into a bag without incident. Police then transported the snake to a local animal shelter.

No injuries were reported in connection to the incident, cops said.
