As a result of hours of consultation between law enforcement and animal control officers, a glue trap was ultimately deployed to capture a venomous zebra cobra on a north Raleigh porch on Wednesday, ending an eventful 48-hour period that attracted attention throughout North Carolina.

A red bucket was used to place the cobra in the bucket and to transport it to a location where all glue could be removed.

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.

Before moving in to capture the snake, Animal Control officers moved camera crews to the back.

On Tuesday, police searched the same home after receiving a 911 call there.

North Carolina. Despite hours of consultation and preparation of law enforcement and animal control officers, a venomous zebra cobra was captured with a glue trap on a north Raleigh porch Wednesday night, coming to an end in North Carolina after nearly 48 hours of turmoil.

After guiding the cobra into a bucket, the glue over its body was carefully removed.

As WRAL's cameras captured it earlier in the day, a striped snake slithered out of the siding of a house on Sandringham Drive and onto a porch. Looking around, its hood was visible as it lifted its head.

When officers confirmed it was the snake, they walked back from the camera crew before moving in to try and capture it.

A 911 call from the same location prompted the search early Tuesday morning.

Joan Nelson expressed relief that the ordeal is over.

I feel a lot safer, said she. I feel extremely happy. Now that I can go outside, I can walk on my deck and go outside. Despite this, I feel sorry for the snake.

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

The snake is a zebra cobra and can spit up to nine feet long, making even a morning dog walk a daunting task. In the opinion of the African Snakebite Institute, snakes are very dangerous. It could cause a victim's nervous system to shut down.

One would feel immediate pain, swelling, irritation, vomiting and diarrhea if stung by a cobra's poison. In the next few hours, a heavy fever would occur, as well as respiratory difficulty.

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

The cobra species in this group doesn't typically bite. The venom from them, she said, is typically sprayed. She said they are extremely accurate and shoot straight for the eyes.

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

In most cases, bites occur when people are sleeping. Bite victims can experience health problems for decades, research shows.

Tuesday afternoon, police searched a home at 6917 Chamonix Place, near the last location where the cobra was spotted.

In March, the police visited that residence four times for an animal issue. In the afternoon, the zebra cobra was spotted on a porch half a mile away.

There are records in the county that indicate Keith and Rebecca Gifford reside at that address. A Facebook account associated with Keith Gifford shows several photos of snakes that Christopher Gifford also owns.

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