Raleigh is a North Carolina city. Despite hours of preparation by animal control and law enforcement officers, a venomous zebra cobra was captured on a north Raleigh porch on Wednesday night, capping an event that garnered attention throughout the state.

To completely remove the glue from its body, the cobra was seated in a red bucket and transported to a safe location.

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. 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.

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

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

Someone who is bitten by the poison of a cobra would feel pain, swelling, gastrointestinal irritation, vomiting, and diarrhea. A severe fever and breathing issues could cause respiratory failure.

A veterinarian at Avian and Exotic Animal Care, Salina Locke, treats all sorts of animals there.

Normally, this cobra species does not bite. They spray their venom more often -- they're very accurate, she said.

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

Sleeping is when most bites occur. The effects of being bitten may last for years, according to research.

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

There was an animal issue at that home in March. The zebra cobra was spotted on a porch a half mile away on Monday and Tuesday.

At that address, Keith and Rebecca Gifford inhabit the house, according to county records. His Facebook account shows several pictures of snakes he claims are owned by his son, Christopher, according to the account.

The TikTok account of Christopher Gifford has over 460000 followers. According to brisbane north snake catcher of his posts, he claims to have a 7-foot zebra cobra.
