moreton bay snake catcher

Following many hours of consultation and preparation by Animal Control officers, a glue trap was ultimately deployed to capture a venomous zebra cobra on a north Raleigh porch on Wednesday, a 48-hour incident that generated nationwide interest.

We guided the cobra into a red bucket and took it to a safe location so that we could fully remove the glue from its body.

A striped snake was spotted earlier in the day crawling out of the siding of a house on Sandringham Drive, onto the front porch of a house. While raising its head to take a look around, its hood was visible.

After confirming the snake was the one they were trying to capture, Animal Control officers moved the camera crews back.

911 call from that same home sparked the search in the early morning Tuesday.

ARLINGTON, N.C. Following hours of consultation and preparation by police and animal control officers, a venomous zebra cobra was captured on a north Raleigh porch on Wednesday night, bowing out a nearly 48-hour ordeal that gained national attention.

As soon as the cobra was guided into the red bucket, it was moved to a safe location where the glue could be fully removed.

A striped snake was spotted earlier in the day crawling out of the siding of a house on Sandringham Drive, onto the front porch of a house. Lifting its head, it was able to see its hood.

It was a relief to neighbor Joan Nelson to have the ordeal over.

I feel a lot safer, said she. I feel extremely happy. Having gone outside, I feel as though I can now go on my deck and walk around. The snake, however, was in a terrible position.

A zebra cobra has been missing from a north Raleigh neighborhood where this stunted snake is seen.

A zebra cobra can spit 9 feet long and is faster than most snakes, making morning dog walks extremely hazardous. The African Snakebite Institute reports that this snake is very dangerous. A victim's nervous system might shut down upon ingestion of the venom.

A person hit by the poison would experience pain, swelling, irritation, vomiting, and diarrhea. The symptoms would be a heavy fever and breathing problems that could lead to respiratory failure.

Salina Locke is an experienced veterinarian at Avian and Exotic Animal Care, where she treats all types of pets.

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

Despite the risks involved, Locke doesn't recommend buying this snake for a pet.

People tend to get bitten most often when they're sleeping. Research shows that people who are bit may suffer health issues for years.

It has been reported that police searched a home on 6917 Chamonix Place, near the location where the cobra was last spotted.

There were four visits by police to that house in March in connection with an animal issue. On Monday and Tuesday, they returned after spotting the zebra cobra on a porch about a half mile away.

The county records indicate that Keith and Rebecca Gifford live at this address. The Facebook page containing Keith Gifford's name contains several photos of snakes that he claims to own.

Christopher Gifford has more than 460000 followers on TikTok. One of his posts claims that he owns a 7-foot zebra cobra.
