Killer Cobra on the Loose in Austin

Subscribe to Kicks 105 on

You can’t blame residents of north Austin for being a little on edge.  A monocled cobra is on the loose, a cobra that is responsible for the death of an 18 year old man.

According to a report in the Austin American Statesman, police responded to the parking lot of a Lowe’s in the 13000 block of North IH-35.  18 year old Grant Thompson was discovered in his car and he was unresponsive.  Two puncture wound were found on his wrist.  It is believed that Thompson, an owner of exotic animals, may have been bitten by a cobra which led to cardiac arrest and eventually Thompson’s death.

Authorities have searched Thompson’s car and home and they have been unable to locate a monocled cobra that he is known to own.  This has lead officials to believe that the snake may have escaped his car while parked in the Lowe’s parking  lot. A pin marks the spot on the map where Thompson was bit.
