Multiple cats missing without a trace, a freshly killed body, and one well-fed, 120-pound Burmese python lurking in the Florida underbrush. Four Port St. Lucie police officers on Friday captured the 12-foot-long snake, which they believe is the culprit in the disappearance of a slew of neighborhood pets over the past nine months. “It’s the answer to so many questions,” said Pamela Dinola, who lost five of her seven cats. Pythons are an exotic species and growing nuisance in Florida where they have no natural predator and feed on native wildlife, most notably in the Florida Everglades. State wildlife officials were looking for the snake's owner, said Frank Sabol, a spokesman for the Port St. Lucie police department. Meanwhile, police consider the case of the missing cats closed.
