Florida Police Officer Captures 12-Foot Python

Florida officers wrangle python

A Pembroke Pines officer called to a scene Thursday night found a Burmese python in the middle of the street.

- An officer in South Florida rounded up an unusual suspect in Pembroke Pines Thursday night.

Cabrera was able to wrangle the python and take it to a police station until a licensed python remover arrived.

The Pembroke Pines Police Department tweeted out a photo showing several officers including Cabrera holding the snake Friday.

One of the department's officers was forced to channel his inner snake charmer when he responded to the call of a large snake seen lurking on city streets.

Although this type of snake isn't venomous, they will still bite people and wrap themselves around their prey, according to ABC News.

"Snakes are not an uncommon sight to Floridians, but Burmese pythons are an invasive species & a real threat to local wildlife, pets, and even children".

Pythons are no stranger to officer Cabrera. He helped secure the snake, which was then transported to Everglades Holiday Park.
