Egypt Air: smuggled cobra onboard and no ban

As a SLF, and frequent flyer in the ME, am curious that Egypt Air allowed a passenger who smuggled a cobra onboard to continue on a later flight after the cobra bit him, causing a emergency landing for first aid (and cobra retrival?).

I agree. The snake should have been promptly banned from any further flying with Egypt Air.
