Following many hours of consultation and preparation by officers from Raleigh police and animal control, a venomous zebra cobra was captured on Wednesday night by a glue trap, a 48-hour incident that generated nationwide interest.

The glue was removed from the cobra’s body after being guided into a red bucket and brought to a safe location.

A striped snake was captured by WRAL cameras crawling onto a front porch on Sandringham Drive earlier in the day. Its hood was visible when it raised its head to look around.

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

The search was sparked by a 911 call from the same home early Tuesday.
