Florida officers wrangle 12.5-foot python

A group of police officers from a Florida town responded to quite an unusual call Thursday evening

A Pembroke Pines Police officer had his hands full when he responded to a call of a massive Burmese python Thursday night.

Officer Cabrera and some fellow policemen were able to pose for a photo with their new reptile friend before it was taken away.

Officer Cabrera wrangled the 12.5-foot snake under control and then took the python to police headquarters.

So that it wouldn't cause an accident or face injury, Cabrera secured the snake by himself and waiting until back upo units could assist. If anyone sees another snake like this python sauntering around their neighborhoods they should call 911.

It wasn't Cabrera's first snake encounter either, the Herald reports, having secured a 3.96-metre, or 13-foot long python after it was found by a group of local teenagers.

"Due to their size and strength these snakes put local wildlife, pets, even children at risk", she said.
