Places to Avoid: Shijiao

"Residents of a township in southwest China have been running scared after more than 160 cobras escaped from an illegal breeding laboratory, state media said Thursday.

People in Shijiao township in the huge Chongqing municipality have found the deadly snakes in outdoor toilets, kitchens and on the streets since they escaped earlier this month."

YIKES! I wonder how much the animal control people get paid over there. Whatever it is, it probably isn't enough.

Illegal cobra hatcheries? WOW -- makes you wonder what comic book supervillain is organizing the organized crime over there.

Whoa. I don't have a problem with snakes, per se, but I am...less than fond of poisonous biting things.

And who breeds cobras? What for? Other than trying to formulate antidotes, lab research, or world domination, I don't see the point.

that would probably make indiana jones faint in terror!! or my teacher lol they need to get a bunch of mongooses (mongeese? think its mongooses) over there.............that would not be fun. but it could be worse like if...........if it cant think of another animal. maybe tigers, or centipedes and millipedes, or giant hairy poisonous spiders, or an army of godzillas, or the shadow city rats but wwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy wwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayy bigger (like horse sized), or.....................dunno, im blanking on freaky animals. but this brings to mind the monkey plague that you posted on a while back............
but if it could probably send indiana jones running and screaming and spooked, then it is NOT good.

Waitaminute here. If this was an illegal cobra hatchery operation, does that mean they've got legal cobra hatching operations?
