moreton bay snake catcher

Despite the consultation and preparation by animal control officers, a venomous zebra cobra was captured on Wednesday night by a glue trap, capping a 48-hour case involving North Carolina media.

We guided the cobra into a red bucket and took it to a safe location so that we could fully remove the glue from its body.

An earlier video interview had captured a striped snake crawling onto a porch on Sandringham Drive from the siding of a house. Lifting its head, its hood could be seen.

After confirming it was a snake, Animal Control officers moved the camera crews back of the area and attempted to capture it there.

Early Tuesday, a 911 call from that home sparked the search.

The story is from Kasey Cunningham, Joe Fisher, and Matt Talhelm, reporters for WRAL; and Heather Leah and Maggie Brown, multiplatform producers for WRAL.

ARLINGTON, N.C. Following hours of consultation and preparation by Raleigh police and animal control officers, a glue trap eventually entrapped a venomous zebra cobra on a north Raleigh porch Wednesday night, highlighting the nearly 48-hour ordeal across North Carolina.

Glue was removed from the cobra's body by placing it in a red bucket and moving it to a safe location.

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.

Before moving in to capture the snake, Animal Control officers moved camera crews to the back.

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

Joan Nelson said she was relieved that the ordeal was over.

She said she feels much safer now and is very happy. It feels good to be outside now, even walking on my deck. Despite this, I feel sorry for the snake.

There is a striped snake in the yard of a north Raleigh neighborhood where a zebra cobra has gone missing.

Even a morning dog walk can prove dangerous for this snake, a zebra cobra that can spit up to nine feet. Apparently, African Snakebite Institute believes the snake is very dangerous. It could cause a victim's nervous system to shut down.

One would feel immediate pain, swelling, irritation, vomiting and diarrhea if stung by a cobra's poison. The symptoms would be a heavy fever and breathing problems that could lead to respiratory failure.

Dr. Salina Locke, a veterinarian with Avian and Exotic Animal Care, treats an array of animals.

Cobras of this type are rarely known to bite. It is more likely that they will spray their venom . They are very accurate and go straight for the eyes.

The snake is not recommended as a pet by Locke due to its risk.

Sleeping is when most bites occur. Bite victims could be plagued with health problems for years, studies show.

In the afternoon of Tuesday, police searched a home in 6917 Chamonix Place, near the spot where the cobra was first spotted.

Four police officers visited the home in March to investigate an animal problem. The zebra cobra was spotted on a porch a half mile away on Monday and Tuesday.

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

Christopher Gifford has 460000 followers on TikTok. The author of the post claims to have a seven-foot zebra cobra.
