Following many hours of 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, ending an eventful 48-hour period that attracted attention throughout North Carolina.

It was taken to a safer location to be fully cleaned after it was guided into the bucket and guided out.

At youtube.com, a striped snake crawled out of the siding of a house on Sandringham Drive onto the front porch of a home earlier in the day. Its hood was visible when it raised its head to look around.

When Animal Control officers confirmed the snake was the one they moved camera crews back before they attempted to catch it.

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

A neighbor, Joan Nelson, said she is relieved the ordeal is over.

She said she was really happy and that she felt much safer now. Getting outside on my deck or stepping out on my deck gives me a sense of freedom. Even so, I feel kind of 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, a zebra cobra, is extremely fast and can spit up to nine feet away, making a walk with the dog even scarier. In the opinion of the African Snakebite Institute, snakes are very dangerous. An animal's venom could cause the victim's nervous system to shut down.

One who is poisoned by the cobra would immediately feel pain, swelling, irritation, vomiting, and diarrhea. Following a heavy fever and breathing problems, you might lose your breath and may die.

Avian and Exotic Animal Care is owned and operated by veterinarian Salina Locke.

The cobras in this species are not typically biting. Venom is more likely to be sprayed by them, since their venom hits straight for the eye since they are so accurate.

She is not recommending it for pets, due to its risks.

Most bites occur when a person is sleeping. Researchers found that bit individuals could suffer health issues for years to come.

There was a police search of 6917 Chamonix Place Tuesday afternoon, near the street where the last sighting of the cobra was reported.

An animal problem led to four police visits in March. They returned on Monday and Tuesday after the zebra cobra was discovered on a porch about a half mile away.

The county records indicate that Keith and Rebecca Gifford live at this address. An account linked to Keith Gifford's name features several photos of snakes belonging to his son, Christopher.

The TikTok account of Christopher Gifford has over 460000 followers. A zebra cobra that is seven feet long is claimed by him on one of his posts.
