snakeSometimes cops catch bad guys, and other times, cops must catch unruly rattlesnakes, especially in Florida.

The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office called the capture of what appears to be a rather large diamondback rattlesnake “good teamwork.”

A photo of the capture, which happened last week at the Echo Lake Apartments located about 20 miles outside of Sarasota, was shared on the department’s Facebook page. The photo was met with both praise and criticism, mainly at mankind for taking over the animals’ territory.
