Massive Python Discovered Eating Neighborhood Cats

PORT ST. LUCIE (CBSMiami) – When cats began disappearing in Port St. Lucie, many residents were concerned.

Turns out, they had a good reason to be worried.

A massive python was feasting on the cats.

Police were called to find the 12-foot-long, 120 pound Burmese python in a bush next to a dead cat.

The snake was wrangled up.

Pythons are an invasive species in South Florida and have been taking over the Everglades.
