Deadly cobra found

The deadly snake that escaped from the Bronx Zoo has been found, and finally the residents of New York city can sleep soundly again.

The poisonous Egyptian cobra slithered away a few days ago.

Since its escape, the cobra apparently took up tweeting, saying it had visited the Empire State Building and a pizza parlour.

The owners said that wasn't true and the cobra's been found in the zoo less than 60 metres away from its cage.
