It’s been a week, and the killer cobra is STILL on loose!
According to WKMG News 6, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission believes that the snake is still in the home of it’s owner. The FWC have searched the house 10 times, they’ve monitored and X-rayed a lizard twice to see if it’s eaten the snake, and now they’re scaling back their search.
Cameras have been used in the search, traps have been set, and still no snake has been found.
Anti-venom expert Jeffery Fobb from the Miami Dade Fire Rescue says that protocol is in place just in case the snake bites someone.
The good thing is we’re located on an air field and there is an air field next to the nearest hospital to the incident in Ocala. So a fixed winged aircraft can fly the medicine up there. We already have it packaged and ready to go in case there is an emergency.
Fobb goes on to say that Miami Dade Fire Rescue is the closet faculty that has the anti-venom, and to transport it’ll take less than 2 hours.
Wow. Well, in the mean time, I’m staying in the house.
