SALERNO, Fla. - Florida deputies got their hands on an unusual suspect on Tuesday.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office said a woman in Salerno called to report a very large and aggressive snake in her yard.

When deputies arrived, they found the 10-foot Albino Burmese python coiled in the underbrush.

Several deputies were able to capture the snake until officers from the Florida Fish & Wilidlife Commission (FWC) arrived to remove it.

They said the snake was able to kill a few family cats before it was caught.
