Detective Emily Shaw of the Leon County Sheriff's Office in Tallahassee wasn’t afraid when it came to rescuing a 9-foot anaconda. The officer was called to a local residence after they noticed the reptile slithering in their backyard—and “crazy” Shaw wasn’t afraid to bag him with her bare hands.

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. She gently drags it into a duffle bag. Her co-worker, who filmed the event, cheered her on, calling her “crazy” as she fearlessly tackled the task.

“Ms. Shaw you are cra-zy,” he says in the video. “You are crazy, girl.”

This wasn’t the first time Shaw handled a snake. She reportedly had experience with exotic creatures, the department said in a Thursday Facebook post.

“MUST SEE VIDEO!!! Our Detective Emily Shaw got an unusual call yesterday, but one she was equipped to handle. Detective Shaw has experience handling exotic snakes. Watch as she captures what is now confirmed as a 9 foot long Yellow Anaconda, found on the east side of Leon County, near Louvinia Drive,” the message read.

“We believe this was someone's pet that either escaped or was released. If you own an exotic pet- please be responsible,” the police department penned. “Make sure their cages are completely secure and if you decide you no longer want it, DO NOT release it into the wild. Instead, contact Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Thanks Detective Emily Shaw for really being #ALLin.”
