Florida detective captures 9-foot anaconda

Video shows a 'crazy' cop capturing a 9-foot anaconda, then stuffing it in a bag

Detective Emily Shaw of the Leon County Sheriff's Office in Tallahassee wasn't afraid when it came to rescuing a 9-foot anaconda.

Shaw used a thick tree branch and one bare hand to drag the serpent from a bed of leaves in storm ditch, and slowly maneuvered it into a duffel bag.

She successfully grabs the anaconda by the tail with her hands, as the giant snake wraps its tail around her arm while she's dragging it across the ground.

Officials say Shaw has experience handling exotic snakes, and it shows, as she expertly side steps and dodges the agitated snake in order to get it into a waiting bag.
