Despite the consultation and preparation by animal control officers, the glue trap finally caught a venomous zebra cobra on the porch of a home in north Raleigh on Wednesday night, a 48-hour incident that generated nationwide interest.

A red bucket was used to guide the cobra into a safe location where all glue could be removed from its body.

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. As it lifted its head, the 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.

An early morning 911 call from that same home prompted the search.
