Missing venomous cobra loose in Grand Prairie residential neighborhood, police say
Grand Prairie police issued a warning Wednesday to look for a poisonous cobra that escaped its owner in a residential neighborhood on Tuesday afternoon.
Authorities said residents should not approach or attempt to catch the West African gang cobra that escaped from a house on the 1800 block on Cherry Street.
The Grand Prairie Police and Grand Prairie Fire Department have notified the area's hospitals of the missing snake and mimicked a protocol with the Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas to treat this type of snakebite in case someone is bitten.
The Grand Prairie Animal Service responded to the report of the missing snake at around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The owner noted that the dangerous snake, approved by the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, was missing from its enclosure around 5 p.m. Tuesday.
Animal service officials, the owner, and a venomous snake expert searched for the snake inside and outside the house all night but failed to find it.
Grand Prairie Police were in contact with state officials regarding policies and procedures for allowing venomous snakes in residential areas.
Grand Prairie asked residents who live in the area and see the missing cobra to call 911 immediately.
