Search resumes for cobra loose in S. California
THOUSAND OAKS, CA - Authorities have resumed the search for a venomous cobra that is on the loose in a Southern California suburban neighborhood.
Brandon Dowling, a Los Angeles County spokesman, says state wildlife officials and animal control officers began searching again at 7 a.m.
Authorities are concentrating on the cooler morning and evening hours when the snake would be more active and more likely to hunt for mice and other food.
The monocle cobra was last seen Monday evening, when it bit a dog in Thousand Oaks, a Ventura County community just past LA County's western border.
Residents are urged to keep pets indoors, watch children and make sure they stay away from animal burrows, pipes and culverts.
