Taipei, Jan. 31 (CNA) The Chiayi City Fire Bureau warned Sunday
about snakes slithering into people’s homes to hibernate after two cobras were caught in a single day a day earlier.
The bureau said it was called into a residence Saturday evening after the owner found skin shed by a snake while cleaning ahead of the Lunar New Year.
A cobra was found in the basement and caught by the firemen, whose unit had just answered a call around noon that day to deal with another cobra in a kitchen of a different home in the area.
As the weather has cooled, snakes will try to find spots to hibernate, the bureau said. [FULL STORY]
