To completely remove the glue from its body, the cobra was seated in a red bucket and transported to a safe location.

A striped snake was captured by WRAL cameras crawling onto a front porch on Sandringham Drive earlier in the day. Looking around, its hood was visible as it lifted its head.

The Wildlife Control officers moved camera crews back after confirming that this is the snake, then went in to attempt to capture it.

Neighbor Joan Nelson said the ordeal was over.

My feeling of security has improved, she said. It feels good to be able to walk on the deck and outside. The snake seems to have a lot of problems, though.

The snake in question was found laying out on a porch in a north Raleigh neighborhood where a zebra cobra had been reported missing.

A zebra cobra can spit 9 feet long and is faster than most snakes, making morning dog walks extremely hazardous. Apparently, African Snakebite Institute believes the snake is very dangerous. It could cause a victim's nervous system to shut down.

One who is poisoned by the cobra would immediately feel pain, swelling, irritation, vomiting, and diarrhea. In the aftermath, a severe fever and breathing problems would ensue, which could eventually lead to respiratory failure.

An experienced veterinarian, Dr. Salina Locke, treats all kinds of pets at the Avian and Exotic Animal Care.

Cobras of this species do not bite. The venom is more likely to spray because they are very accurate and go straight for the eye, she said.

A pet of this snake is not recommended because of the risks, according to Locke.

Bite incidents are most common during sleep. Research shows that people who are bit may suffer health issues for years.

In the late afternoon on Tuesday, police searched 6917 Chamonix Place, near the place where the snake was last spotted.

There was an animal issue at that home in March. They returned Monday and Tuesday after seeing the zebra cobra on a porch about a half mile away.

There are records in the county that indicate Keith and Rebecca Gifford reside at that address. The Facebook page containing Keith Gifford's name contains several photos of snakes that he claims to own.

Christopher Gifford has 460000 followers on TikTok. He says he has a 7-foot-long zebra cobra on one of his posts.
