HOUSTON – An aggressive 2-foot-long cobra captured at a luxury high-rise apartment complex in Houston has been euthanized.
Houston police were summoned to the complex after residents spotted an albino monocled cobra on the third floor over the weekend. Police used a broom to corner and capture the snake. No injuries were reported.
Authorities aren't sure how the snake, which is native to Southeast Asia, ended up in the building or who owned it.
Josie Moss says her pest control company tried to find a home for snake, but found little interest due to its aggression. Moss said Thursday that the snake was extremely dangerous and its venom can be deadly.
