(LOS ANGELES) — A dangerous albino cobra whose disappearance in a Los Angeles suburb inspired its own Twitter handle has been caught.

Ventura County Fire Captain Ron Oatman says animal control officers captured the snake in the same yard where it attacked a dog Monday in Thousand Oaks, after it was spotted by drivers Thursday.

“Animal control was able to find it under a wood pile,” Oatman said, “They used a snake catcher where they grabbed it with like an arm and forced it into a box.”

Officials believe the cobra, missing since Monday, was someone’s illegal pet that got loose.
