VIDEO: Florida detective wrangles 9-foot anaconda

A Florida detective became a snake wrangler Wednesday when she received a call about a 9-foot-long yellow anaconda.

Cellphone video shows Detective Emily Shaw catching the large reptile with a branch, a duffel bag and her bare hands. She makes quick work of the anaconda, securing it inside the duffel bag in a matter of minutes.

Watch the video above.

Florida Fish and Wildlife officers believe the snake was someone’s pet that either escaped or was released.
