Officer Cabrera jumped into action and wrangled the snake.

When he arrived on the scene near Johnson Street and US 27, Officer Joey Cabrera found a 12-and-a-half foot long Burmese python.

In a video posted to Twitter, Cabrera is seen grabbing the snake with two hands, as his vehicle's lights flash in the background while traffic is passing by.

Cabrera then took the python to the department until a licensed python remover arrived.

It wasn't Cabrera's first snake encounter either, the Herald reports, having secured a 3.96-metre, or 13-foot long python after it was found by a group of local teenagers. If anyone sees another snake like this python sauntering around their neighborhoods they should call 911. "The python is now being transported to Everglades Holiday Park to be assessed by professionals".
