ORLANDO, FLORIDA – For over a month, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has been searching for a missing 8-foot King Cobra in the Orlando area.
On Thursday, the missing cobra was caught just over 1,500 feet from where it had escaped.
Law enforcement officers secured it in a steel cage and large venomous transport box in order to return it to the permitted owner.
The current cage was inspected and meets the requirements.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is continuing to review this incident.
