snakeFLORIDA CITY, FL – Grilled snake may not have been on your menu for Fourth of July weekend, but it was for some.

Residents in Florida City, Florida were in for a very big surprise when they spotted a 12-foot Burmese python in their neighborhood.

They tried to capture the massive reptile and even called 911; but first responders didn’t get there until about a half hour later.

So they did what anyone would do — they trapped it in a barbecue grill!

There still no word on where the slithering snake came from; that’s definitely a meal no one wants to sink their teeth into.
