Despite the 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, ending an eventful 48-hour period that attracted attention throughout North Carolina.

The glue was removed from the cobra's body after being guided into a red bucket and brought to a safe location.

Earlier in the day, WRAL's cameras caught the snake crawling out of a siding onto a porch on Sandringham Drive. When it lifted its head to look around, the top of its hood was visible.

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

The search was sparked by a 911 call from the same home early Tuesday.

North Carolina, Raleigh Following a 48-hour saga that garnered attention from across North Carolina, a glue trap eventually entrapped a venomous zebra cobra on a north Raleigh porch Wednesday night, capping an unusual 48-hour saga that garnered 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.

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.

After confirming it was the snake, Animal Control officers moved the camera crews back before moving in to capture it.

Searches were launched early Tuesday after the same home made a 911 call.

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

My feeling of security has improved, she said. Now that I'm outside, I can go on my deck and have a walk. It's very sad for the snake, though.

logan snake catcher A striped snake lies out on a porch in a north Raleigh neighborhood where a zebra cobra has disappeared.

The snake, a zebra cobra, can spit up to 9 feet and is faster than most snakes, making even a morning walk with the dog scary. The African Snakebite Institute states that the snake is very dangerous. A victim's nervous system could shut down if stung with venom.

Anyone exposed to the poison of the cobra would experience immediate pain, swelling, irritation, vomiting, and diarrhea. It would then lead to a high fever and breathing problems, which could cause respiratory failure.

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

Normally, this cobra species does not bite. Venom is more likely to be sprayed by them, she said; they are very accurate and aim straight for the eyes.

Despite the risks involved, Locke does not recommend keeping this snake as a pet.

Sleeping is the most common time when people are bitten. Bite victims may suffer health problems for years, research reveals.

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

This home was visited four times by police during the month of March. Following the sighting on Monday and Tuesday of the zebra cobra on a porch about half a mile away, they returned.

The records of the county show Rebecca and Keith Gifford live at the address. In a Facebook profile associated with Keith Gifford's name, there are several pictures of snakes he says his son Christopher owns.

His TikTok account has more than 460000 followers. He says he has a 7-foot-long zebra cobra on one of his posts.
