LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - A dangerous, venomous snake is missing near Fort Worth, Texas.

The owner had a permit for the West African Banded Cobra.

Grand Prairie Police say the person reported the animal missing from its enclosure Tuesday evening.

The fire department alerted area hospitals -- so they’ll be ready to treat potential snake bites.

Police want people to call 9-1-1 if they see the snake -- but not try to capture it.
