In Raleigh, North Carolina. Following hours of consultation and preparation by police and animal control officers, a venomous zebra cobra was captured on a north Raleigh porch on Wednesday night, highlighting the nearly 48-hour ordeal across North Carolina.
As the cobra was guided into the bucket, it was taken to a safe area where the glue on its body could be removed completely.

Neighbor Joan Nelson said the ordeal was over.
'I feel very safe now,' she said. My deck and I have become more comfortable outside now. The snake seems to have a lot of problems, though.
A zebra cobra has been missing from a north Raleigh neighborhood where this stunted snake is seen.
Zebra cobras are fast, can spit up to nine feet, and can spit at high speeds, making even morning dog walks dangerous. The African Snakebite Institute cites the snake as extremely dangerous. A victim's nervous system could be shut down by the venom.
Someone who is bitten by the poison of a cobra would feel pain, swelling, gastrointestinal irritation, vomiting, and diarrhea. A high fever and breathing difficulties would follow, which could lead to respiratory failure.
At Avian and Exotic Animal Care, veterinarian Salina Locke treats all kinds of pets.
The cobra species in this group doesn't typically bite. The venom sprays more readily, since it is so accurate. they aim right for the eyes, she said.
According to Locke, this snake is not suitable for keeping as a pet.
Sleeping people are more likely to be bitten. Research shows that people who are bit may suffer health issues for years.
It was Tuesday afternoon when police conducted a search of 6917 Chamonix Place, near the street where the snake was last seen.
In March, the police visited that residence four times for an animal issue. Following the sighting on Monday and Tuesday of the zebra cobra on a porch about half a mile away, they returned.
The records of county government indicate that Keith and Rebecca Gifford reside at this address. There is a Facebook account for Keith Gifford that shows several photos of snakes that he claims are owned by his son, Christopher.
Christopher Gifford has over 460000 followers on TikTok. One of his posts claims that he owns a 7-foot zebra cobra.
