Venomous snake seized from woman's home

Indiana wildlife officials said they have seized a venomous 5-foot Egyptian cobra from a Crown Point, Ind., woman's home.

Conservation Officer Shawn Brown of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said Elizabeth Zelms was issued a summons on a charge of possessing a venomous reptile without a permit after the snake was removed from her home, The Northwest Indiana Times of Hammond, Ind., reported Monday.

Brown said state officials learned of Zelms's snake after she applied for a permit with the Department of Natural Resources. He said she told officials she rescued the cobra from someone who wasn't taking proper care of it.
"The law says you have a permit beforehand," Brown said. "That's a dangerous reptile. It's not something to mess around with."
