Elderly Pennsylvania Woman Kills Cobra on Her Property
Cobras in Pennsylvania? Well, one tough 73 year-old woman wasn't having any of it. WENY is reporting that a woman saw the snake slithering outside her apartment in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania Monday. Much to her shock, the 4 to 5 foot long serpent began to spread its hood, a telltale sign of a cobra.
According to Newsweek, it was an Asian cobra.
This is when this tough great-grandmother decided to take matters into her own hands. In this case, it involved a shovel. WENY says the woman took pictures of the snake before wacking it to death with the shovel. She told ABC 6:
I stalked him and when he got over to here I tapped his tail. He went up and that's when I did the deed and held him there.
WENY says the woman lived in the same apartment complex where officials removed twenty snakes in March, though police say the rogue cobra may not be related to that incident.
