An 11-foot Albino Burmese Python was found slithering in a woman's yard Wednesday morning along Florida's Atlantic coast.

Martin County deputies were called to the 4400 block of southeast Murray Cove Circle at around 8 a.m., and they found the snake, which had just eaten two neighborhood cats.

As the deputies approached the snake, it released the dead cats.

The snake was caught and placed in a trash can until Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers could arrive.

The python was taken to Bush Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter. It didn't have a microchip.
