CHARLOTTE, N.C. Following hours of consultation and preparation by police and animal control officers, a glue trap ultimately trapped a venomous zebra cobra on a north Raleigh porch Wednesday night, capping a 48-hour saga that attracted national attention.

As the glue was slowly removed from the cobra's body, it was placed into a red bucket and taken to a safe location.

An earlier video interview had captured a striped snake crawling onto a porch on Sandringham Drive from the siding of a house. While raising its head to take a look around, its hood was visible.

Officers from Animal Control moved the cameras back after confirming that it was the snake, trying to capture it before moving in.

Early Tuesday, early Tuesday morning, a 911 call from inside the same house sparked the search.

The ordeal has ended, said Joan Nelson, her neighbor.

'I feel very safe now,' she said. It feels good to be able to walk on the deck and outside. It's very sad for the snake, though.

One zebra cobra has gone missing from a north Raleigh neighborhood where there is a striped snake on a porch.

A zebra cobra, which can spit up to nine feet, is faster than most snakes, so even a morning stroll with the dog becomes a fearsome event. The African Snakebite Institute cites the snake as extremely dangerous. A victim's nervous system might shut down upon ingestion of the venom.

Those stung by the poison would experience severe pain, swelling, rashes, nausea, and diarrhea as a result. A high fever and breathing difficulties would follow, which could lead to respiratory failure.

Dr. Salina Locke, a veterinarian at Avian and Exotic Animal Care, treats all kinds of animals.

Cobras of this species do not bite. They spray their venom more often -- they're very accurate, she said.

According to Locke, this snake is not suitable for keeping as a pet.

In most cases, bites occur when people are sleeping. Bite victims may suffer health problems for years, research reveals.

It was Tuesday afternoon when police conducted a search of 6917 Chamonix Place, near the street where the snake was last seen.

There was an animal issue at that home in March. Following the zebra cobra's spotting on a porch a half mile away, they returned on Monday and Tuesday.

There are records in the county indicating Keith and Rebecca Gifford live at that address. A Facebook account associated with Keith Giffords shows several photos of snakes, which he identifies as being his son's, Christopher.

Christopher Gifford has 460000 followers on TikTok. A zebra cobra that is seven feet long is claimed by him on one of his posts.
