PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - A Port St. Lucie police sergeant, who was responding to 911 calls of a very large snake eating neighborhood cats, located a 12-foot, 120 pound Burmese python in waist-high brush Friday morning.

Police say that around 7:20 a.m., Sergeant John Holman arrived in an empty lot on S.E. Faith Terrace and found a dead cat.

In waist-high brush he continued to hunt for evidence of a large snake when he spotted the python, police say.

Holman called for backup.

When fellow officers arrived they were able to safely remove the snake from the brush.

Police placed the python with a person who has a license with Florida Fish and Wildlife to house the snake.
