A detective from the Leon County Sheriff's Office in Florida rescued a 9ft long yellow anaconda from the roadside with her bare hands as it tried to wrap itself around her Thursday.

Emily Shaw grappled with the giant anaconda in the video which has been shared 1.8k times and has 143k views.

The man filming her epic feat can be heard saying: 'Are you sure it's slow moving?' which is when the 9 foot long anaconda moves swiftly frightening the man and Shaw. 

He continues to narrate during the clip as he says: 'You think he got run-over? Or is he just shy?'

She successfully grabs the anaconda by the tail with her hands, as the giant snake wraps its tail around her arm while she's dragging it across the ground.

While she is maneuvering the boa the man filming her says: 'Emily Shaw you are crazy, you are crazy girl!'

While she is attempting to lift the snake in the air it keeps jabbing at her.

Eventually she manages to get the giant anaconda into the brown duffel bag while the man says: 'there you go, good job, good job.'

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. 

In the bio on their official site they say: 'The Leon County Sheriff's Office not only prides itself on putting the community first - we also have many deputies who constantly go above the call of duty for our animal friends.'

They've raised $325 with $1000 being the ultimate goal. 

They said they deal with all sorts of animals including the 'scaly variety.' They ended with: 'Our community's animals depend on you for help, so please donate whatever you can!' 

The snake was discovered on the east side of the county and the detectives suggested it was a pet that had either escaped or been released.
