Most of the people would freak out and run for their lives.

Video of the capture has gone viral, piling up almost 2,000 shares, since it was uploaded to the Sheriff's Office's Facebook page Thursday.

"Thanks Detective Emily Shaw for really being #ALLin", the post read. It shows the detective first prodding the snake gently with a thick branch.

"It sure is slow moving", the person recording the video is heard saying. Shaw then slowly drags it to a duffel bag as the anaconda tries to curl its tail around her hand. She makes it look so easy like she have been doing this all her life.

According to the post, the snake may have been a pet that had either escaped or had been released.

"If you own an exotic pet, please be responsible", deputies wrote.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission warns that setting exotic pets free is illegal and likely to result in the animal's death.

The anaconda was found on the east side of Leon County, near Louvinia Drive. They also had a foster family on standby for the anaconda.
