No big deal. At least for Detective Emily Shaw of the Leon County Sheriff's Office in Tallahassee.
She first used a large stick to position the reptile for her to grab it by its tail-end.
The Leon County Sheriff's Office posted a video on Facebook on Thursday of one of its detectives wrangling a 9-foot yellow anaconda.
Officials say Shaw had experience handling exotic snakes, so she was the right person for the call. Shaw then slowly drags it to a duffel bag as the anaconda tries to curl its tail around her hand.
A Florida detective responded to an unusual call on Wednesday, but it was one that she apparently knew how to handle.
A police officer and a giant snake faced off in Leon County, Florida, and the officer walked away victorious.
"If you own an exotic pet, please be responsible", deputies wrote.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission warns that setting exotic pets free is illegal and likely to result in the animal's death.
