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]
