PEARLAND, Texas -- A snake caused a stir Wednesday in Pearland after it slithered its way into an SUV’s engine.

Pearland Animal Control and Pearland police responded to the scene Wednesday afternoon at a Best Buy parking lot on West Broadway at Highway 288. They say the snake slithered into the SUV.
