Large snake found in east end Toronto sewer

'There's snakes out there this big?'

Toronto firefighters bagged themselves a snake estimated to be between three and five feet long early Tuesday morning. The snake was spotted sticking its head out of a sewer grate near Victoria Park and Danforth Avenues after midnight on Tuesday.

Firefighters removed the grate and retrieved the snake, which a passerby believed was stuck, and handed it over to the city’s animal services.

According to CBC, Toronto Fire noted that 311 had received a call from someone attempting to turn over a snake, but the city’s animal shelter was not open at the time of the call.

Well, at least someone was saved from the surprise of an elongated legless reptile delivering a toilet surprise.
