Albino Cobra on the loose in the 818 (the Valley-Part of LA)

An Albino Cobra is on the loose in the San Fernando Valley section of Los Angeles!  For the record, we are unaware of loose Albino Cobras on the Westside. Local media are reporting that an Albino Cobra bit a dog and slithered away on Wednesday, September 3, 2014.  We despise anything that harms dogs. There are serious limits on the ability to own and control a Cobra under Federal and California law.  More importantly, under California law, strict liability is imposed against owners for the harm their wild animals cause others.  This goes back years to Opelt v. Al G. Barnes Co. (1919) 41 Cal.App.776, 779. (See also CACI 461).  If you’ve been bitten by a Cobra, regardless of pigmentation, get immediate medical treatment. Whoever is housing these creatures then letting them loose, needs to be held accountable, especially without Steve Irwin available.  We know only one other attorney who handles snake cases: Chris Gansen.
