Pembroke Pines Police Officer Wrangles 12-Foot Python

A Pembroke Pines Police officer had his hands full when he responded to a call of a massive Burmese python Thursday night.

Officer Cabrera responded to the Chapel Trail area near U.S. 27 and Johnson Street where he encountered the 12 and a half foot snake.

Cabrera was able to wrangle the python and take it to a police station until a licensed python remover arrived. Officers from the department even posed for a photo with the massive snake.

The department warned residents to not approach pythons but to call 911.
