As efforts continue to hunt Burmese pythons in the Everglades, a police officer in Pembroke Pines wrangled in a big one this week.

The officer was called to a street near the Everglades Thursday night when someone spotted a 12 and a half foot python in he road.  

According to the police department, the officer safely brought the snake to headquarters until a licensed python remover arrived.

Authorities warn: Don't try this at home.
