No. No. No. Heck No.

This is terrifying. Why in the name of all that is good and right in the universe are ordinary people issued permits to own venomous snakes? Why? Why? Why?

Florida Wildlife officials look for escaped king cobra

As if the fact this person had a cobra wasn't scary enough, consider that he had another cobra escape years ago. That one was shot by a homeowner in his garage. And they issued the careless deadly reptile owner ANOTHER PERMIT because WHY? WHY? WHY?

This is seriously making me rethink my neutrality on the subject of gun control.

I'm curling up in the fetal position and sucking my thumb until this snake is found. Because you know that it is on its way to Ohio to kill me. Because it KNOWS.

I may or may not have ophidiophobia.

What a nightmare.

  1. Yes, allowing random people to have permits to own venomous snakes is crazy. I think snakes are wonderful, personally, but wouldn't want to get close to a cobra. I've been close to plenty of brown snakes and red-bellied black snakes (and increased the distance between us rapidly) but never seen one as a pet.

    It's interesting that you mentioned gun control. It was the first thing that came to my mind as I read your words - why are random people allowed to own guns without thorough checks and barriers? So many people dying unnecessarily.


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
