Tax police adopt poisonous snakes

Two very poisonous black cobra snakes have been adopted by a special anti-corruption police unit. The two reptiles are currently located at the Dvůr Králové zoo and will in no case be joining their new patrons. The so-called Kobra tax unit is giving 18,000 crowns a year for the upkeep of the long living snakes who are estimated each to swallow their way through around 40 rodents a month. While the donations could be tax deductible the tax enforcers say they not likely to be making any claims. The KOBRA unit was created in mid-2014 and already reckoned to have save the state around 1.7 billion crowns.
