A detective in Tallahassee was tasked with capturing a 9-foot-long anaconda, which is a thing cops in Florida have to do now.

On Wednesday, Oct. 11, Detective Emily Shaw with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office was called to collar the massive snake, which escaped from its owner's enclosure.



As you can see in the video above, Shaw had no problem bagging up this reptile.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is now in possession of the anaconda, and it’s unclear if the owner will get the snake back, reports WCTV.
