Police and snake capture specialists on Friday captured a pet green mamba that had gone missing in Prague’s district of Hlubočepy for several days.
The deadly snake was spotted in a garden about 200 metres from the apartment building in which it had been illegally kept, and which police had evacuated until its capture.
The green mamba’s apparent owner was put into an induced coma after being admitted to hospital and given an anti-venom serum.
