A glue trap seals weeks of searching for a venomous zebra cobra in north Raleigh.
Despite the efforts of animal control officers and law enforcement, 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.

A striped snake was spotted earlier in the day crawling out of the siding of a house on Sandringham Drive, onto the front porch of a house. Lifting its head, its hood could be seen.

The Wildlife Control officers moved camera crews back after confirming that this is the snake, then went in to attempt to capture it.

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

Raleigh is a North Carolina city. Following hours of consultation and preparation by Raleigh police and animal control officers, a zebra cobra was caught on a Raleigh porch on Wednesday night, capping an unusual 48-hour saga that garnered national attention.

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

When officers confirmed it was the snake, they walked back from the camera crew before moving in to try and capture it.

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

Neighbor Joan Nelson said the ordeal was over.

She said she was really happy and that she felt much safer now. It feels good to be able to walk on the deck and outside. Though I do feel a little sorry for the snake.

A zebra cobra, which can spit up to nine feet, is faster than most snakes, so even a morning stroll with the dog becomes a fearsome event. Consequently, the African Snakebite Institute says the snake is very dangerous. An animal's venom could cause the victim's nervous system to shut down.

Those stung by the poison would experience severe pain, swelling, rashes, nausea, and diarrhea as a result. A high fever and breathing difficulties would follow, which could lead to respiratory failure.

The Avian and Exotic Animal Care is run by veterinarian Salina Locke, who treats all types of pets.

There is no evidence that this species of cobra bites. The venom is more likely to spray because they are very accurate and go straight for the eye, she said.

According to Locke, this snake is not suitable for keeping as a pet.

The majority of bites occur during sleep. Bite victims can experience health problems for decades, research shows.

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

In March, the police visited that residence four times for an animal issue. Following the zebra cobra's spotting on a porch a half mile away, they returned on Monday and Tuesday.

There are records in the county indicating Keith and Rebecca Gifford live at that address. On a Facebook page associated with Keith Gifford's name, he posts photos of snakes owned by his son, Christopher.

Christopher Gifford has more than 460000 followers on TikTok. One of his posts claims that he owns a 7-foot zebra cobra.
