Community Finally Learns Why Their Cats Kept Going Missing One After Another

When you hear of a neighborhood cat passing away. You usually assume that it got hit by a car, a hawk or other large footed animal got it. But that’s not the case in this one Florida community.

This Florida neighborhood may have finally solved the mystery of what has been happening to their cats. According to the Daily News, a South Florida police department believes that the 12-foot and 120-pound Burmese python they captured is the culprit.

Officers stopped by the Port St. Lucie neighborhood after getting reports that a large snake was on the loose. It took several officers to pull the snake from some brush, where a deceased cat was found nearby in an empty lot.

A photo of four officers holding up their and new friend has been circulating throughout the media.

Daily News reports that researchers are blaming pythons for the reduction of native mammals in the Everglades. The pythons arrived in Florida after being dumped by pet owners who didn’t want them after they grew too large or ones that escaped from pet shops during Hurricane Andrew and are rapidly reproducing.
