PUEBLO - A Craigslist ad in Pueblo caused many in the city to panic. Someone posted that a collection of venomous snakes were missing in the area.

The ad claims that four black mamba snakes, which have lethal venom, went missing last Thursday near playground equipment in the center of the city.

However, the Pueblo Police Department believes the ad is a hoax. Authorities are no longer searching for the snakes.

After investigating further, it appears the same person who posted the ad about the missing black mambas also posted an ad about a "lost fire-breathing unicorn."
