She took a large tree branch and used it to put the snake into a gym bag. Her co-worker, who filmed the event, cheered her on, calling her "crazy" as she fearlessly tackled the task.

It's no surprise Shaw was the first detective the Florida based Sheriff department called upon as she actually has her own fundraiser benefiting the Leon County Humane Society.

As you can see in the video above, Shaw had no problem bagging up this reptile.

Buffin is facing charges for robbery with a weapon, pointing a firearm, possession of stolen property, and flight from police. Mounties then responded to reports of a shooting at a Holiday Inn Express in Sherwood Park, just east of Edmonton.

LCSO shared the video to their Facebook page Thursday. She and other officers came face to face with a 9-foot long yellow anaconda near Tallahassee recently.

Officials say Shaw has experience handling exotic snakes, and it shows, as she expertly side steps and dodges the agitated snake in order to get it into a waiting bag. Make sure their cages are completely secure and if you decide you no longer want it, DO NOT release it into the wild.

Deputies say that instead of releasing pets, owners should contact the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
