'Crazy' Florida Cop Captures 9-Foot Anaconda With Bare Hands

Thankfully, Leon County Sheriff's Detective Emily Shaw had experience handling exotic animals and could safely capture the 9-foot-long snake, the Leon County Sheriff's Office posted on their Facebook page.

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.

The police department released footage of the incident Thursday, which showed Shaw poking the anaconda with a stick first and then grabbing it by the tail.

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

Video of the capture has gone viral, piling up almost 2,000 shares, since it was uploaded to the Sheriff's Office's Facebook page Thursday.

While she is maneuvering the boa the man filming her says: 'Emily Shaw you are insane, you are insane girl!' The anaconda was found on the east side of Leon County, near Louvinia Drive. "If you own an exotic pet- please be responsible", the police department penned. "Thanks Detective Emily Shaw for really being #ALLin".
