A postal worker in the northwest suburbs says he came across all kinds of strange things on his route before but he's never found a rattlesnake. That's until a week ago. Jon Vosburg found the four-foot snake slithering in front of his truck in North Barrington.

Vosburg sent the photo to animal control. They determined it was a rare Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake.

Vosburg says he is glad he didn't run it over but he says he'll look out for it from now on.
