    The officer "wrangled" it? Only way I'd wrangle that damn thing is with a bunch of high velocity lead, from a distance.

    Cops seem to shoot dogs on a regular basis fearing for their safety.

    Why not shoot this fugly monster?

    Then pose with it?

    Makey no sensey to me.

    My son has a 7'female python and a boa constrictor.He says she's not full grown,if she's going to get as big as the one in the pic i'd find it a new home,that thing has got to be dangerous to own.

    I’ve caught more dogs at work than shot them.

    I’ve also had more dogs come up to me tail wagging than attacking me. I’m sure this snake was very sluggish due to the cold temperatures

    No joke... I would run it over while driving a Jeep Wrangler, but that is as close to Wrangling that thing as I would be. I wouldn’t even take that picture.

    Perhaps a harbinger of bad things to come, the snake was found at Johnson Street.

    Yes, it is. That's why you see 4 officers. The safety rule is one handler for every three feet of snake.

    FWC pays $250 for that thing dead. I'm surprised nobody killed it and turned it in for the reward.

    The low here last night was 67. I am not sure how sluggish they get at 67 degrees although I imagine it was on the roadway trying to soak up some blacktop heat.

    I wonder how many pairs of cowboy boots could be made from that thing?
