12-foot python trapped in a Florida City grill

A monster surprise turned up in a south Florida neighborhood!

Residents spotted a massive snake and it took a while to get rid of the unwanted visitor.

It quickly became the talk of the town.

Daryl Brooks calls the community home, and has even kept a python as a pet.

But even she wasn't ready for this monster surprise.

Shocked but not scared, Brooks tried to take matters into her own hands, but the reptile was just too much for her to handle alone.

Brooks says, "I was scared to grab her by myself she was pretty strong so there was a guy coming out and I said 'hey are you scared of snakes?' and he said, 'no'. I said, 'come over here' and he came over it had slid and hid under the lady's barbecue grill."

While they wrangled the reptile, others dialed 911. But it would be at least a half hour before first responders reached the scene.

News of the reptile eviction helped residents and pet owners breath a big sigh of relief.

The snake spotting is the talk of the town, giving residents a Fourth of July holiday they will never forget.

Authorities responding to the scene say the python was not someone's pet, it came from the wild.
