Timber Rattlesnake In Springfield?

A rattlesnake isn't a normal part of  life in downtown Springfield, but one had to be removed from that area  on Saturday. 

The timber rattlesnake was found on the front stoop of a  residential building on William Street. 

It's not clear where the snake  came from, but Massachusetts Environmental Police released it on Mount  Tom after local animal control officers were able to capture it.
