THIS is the horrifying moment a giant boa constrictor crushed a pigeon to death in broad daylight on a busy London street.

The bizarre footage was captured by Facebook user Rebecca Garland, who shared it to a group called S*** London.

One poster commented: "F*** sake this heatwave better not have bought the tropical wildlife with it!"

Another added: " I fully support this new measure to control the skyrat population".

The RSPCA confirmed the boa was rescued and taken to a nearby wildlife centre.

RSPCA inspector Rebecca Benson said: "I'm very keen to find out how he came to be in such a dangerous situation.

"Exposed like that on a street could have meant anything might have happened to him he could have been run over by a car or attacked by another animal.

"It might be that he is an escaped pet, or more worryingly, someone may have deliberately dumped him and left him to fend for himself.

"Either way, anybody with any information can give me a call in complete confidence on our inspector's appeal line by phoning 0300 123 8018."

I,m not sure what the concern is here. The snake has had something to eat. Obviously it is not in any danger, there are millions of limeys to eat when they have depleted the penguins.

One pigeon at a time untill it grows sufficiently so it can eat Limeys all day.
