SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. – A Seminole County deputy helped trap a 6-foot long boa constrictor last week, according to the sheriff’s office.

According to a tweet from the department, Deputy Leguizamo helped wrangle the escaped snake on Old Lake Mary Road early Wednesday.

Officials with the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said the deputy contacted a local exotic animal rescue to hand over the snake for safekeeping.

This comes as a curious alligator stopped by an east Orange County fire station Saturday, proving that interesting wildlife is all around us in Central Florida.
