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.

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.

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

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.
