It is pretty common to hear news reports of wild cats, bears and other animals escaping the confines of a zoo. Usually the uncommon sight of these animals make them easy to spot in residential areas. (imagine a giraffe in River Ranch) But imagine a smaller animal. Imagine a snake on the loose. More specifically a King Cobra; one of the most venomous snakes on the planet able to kill an elephant within 3 hours of a bite (which equates to 15 minutes for you and I)

This is the exact situation that residents near the Bronx Zoo are facing right now after a 20" King Cobra has escaped from its enclosure.

What if this situation happened at the Zoo Of Acadiana ? Would you be freaking out ? Are you afraid of snakes ? If not, are you afraid of extremely poisonous ones ?
