No... it isn’t some April Fool’s joke--the rogue Bronx zoo cobra has finally been found. But first... let’s go back to the beginning.
“A deadly cobra is still on the loose tonight. Missing from the Bronx zoo.” (Video Source: KOIN)
“Remember that missing cobra at the Bronx zoo that we told you about last night? Well, it is still missing.” (Video Source: WJBK)
CONAN: “Now people are upset because the cobra is still missing.” (Video Source: TBS)
Then the cobra gathered quite a following--grew a pair of thumbs and began tweeting.
“The missing cobra also earned a cult following online. The anonymous ‘BronxZoosCobra’ Twitter feed has nearly 200,000 followers.” (Video Source: KFMB)
Phoenix Fox-affiliate KSAZ reports exactly how the slithering snake was snatched... not too far from where she was lost.
FEMALE ANCHOR: “She was curled up in a corner of the reptile house. Zoo officials had sectioned off that area, and were pretty confident they’d find her.”
MALE ANCHOR: “Yeah, they put woodchips on there with the scent of rodents... and she couldn't resist.”
FEMALE ANCHOR: “Oh my goodness, really?”
MALE ANCHOR: “Ahh, the scent of rodents!”
And to the Bronx Zoo Director himself, who says the staff had the utmost confidence they’d find the baby cobra--and had even sectioned off the place she was eventually found.
“The key strategy here in recovering this snake was patience, and that’s kinda what we’ve said all along.” (Video Source: CBS)
Finally - an anchor at KNSD had just one thing to say:
“...I hope he keeps tweeting.”
