Deadly Cobra on the Loose in T.O.

I'm not even kidding.

The Toronto Star is reporting that a spitting cobra is loose in the Church St & Weston Rd neighbourhood.

The slithering fugitive has been loose for the past week and a half, snaking its way around a townhouse, which has already caused at least 2 families to be forced out of their homes.

Animal control is trying to lure it into their capturing hands, but the cobra will have none of that. Apparently, it's in dark spaces where it may be snacking on a couple weeks supply of mice. Very nice.

So far, it doesn't look like he'll be getting out of the house to go cruising for Thanksgiving but officials are keeping an eye on the situation.
