Video shows a 'crazy' cop capturing a 9-foot anaconda, then stuffing it in a bag

A detective from the Leon County Sheriff's Office in Florida rescued a 9ft long yellow anaconda from the roadside with her bare hands as it tried to wrap itself around her Thursday.

Shaw was armed with only a large tree branch and what appears to be a gym bag.

The police department released footage of the incident Thursday, which showed Shaw poking the anaconda with a stick first and then grabbing it by the tail.

"Ms. Shaw you are cra-zy", he said in the video.

A Florida detective responded to an unusual call on Wednesday, but it was one that she apparently knew how to handle. "You are insane, girl".

Officials say Shaw had experience handling exotic snakes, so she was the right person for the call.

The snake was discovered on the east side of the county and the detectives suggested it was a pet that had either escaped or been released. "If you own an exotic pet- please be responsible", the police department penned. Do not forget to keep cages secure and to contact Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission if you no longer want your pet.
