Snakes in the News

Indiana conservation officers confiscated a cobra from a woman who rescued it when she applied for a permit for it. (News source.) [So, I suppose the take-home message is, if you rescue a venomous snake in Indiana, don't bother trying to get a permit. Seriously, wildlife officers should have better sense. Given that it's a non-issue, sounds like they were just shooting for cheap publicity.]

And, two Pakistani women were bitten by a venomous snake while working in the fields. (News source.)
