    A banded cobra is loose in Grand Prairie.

    "Police say the owner of a venomous West African Banded Cobra snake called animal services on Tuesday to report his snake had been missing since 5 p.m. His home is in the 1800 block of Cherry Street. The owner says there was no lock on the cage. "

    Antivenom is standing by and available at parkland hospital.

    Ya I'm torn. I think you're a phucking retard to keep snakes like that or constrictors large enough to kill your toddler..

    But it's not my place to tell people how to act.

    But if someone gets hurt by your stupidity, then you got every bad thing coming to you.

    I'm at the same place. I don't think we should be telling people how to act, but most of us would think that keeping venomous snakes in their home is extremely stupid in the first place.

    This cobra getting loose in Grand Prairie is why I suspect that some cities have ordinances in prohibiting such behavior.

    And no one can convince me keeping a cobra for a "pet" is a good idea, or that there is any practical reasons for keeping one in their home.

    But I'm open for debate on the subject.

    Venom is worth big money. I knew a guy in college that kept all manner of nasty shit, in order to harvest and sell venom. Dude was weird.

    Hey, if the owner of the snake gets his stupid self bitten and dies, I don't see a huge loss. Just the gene pool doing some cleaning.

    But when the idiot allows one to get loose, and some innocent bystander gets bitten, that should be criminal, and carry every single charge that can be brought against that idiot.

    I have watched a number of programs on harvesting venom. Yes, there is some very big money involved.

    Money is probably what drives idiots to do stupid shit like keep them in their home.
