Wild Milk snakes In Mississauga?

Dudes and Dudetts I found a milk snake on my block, and i live in a suburban area lots of houses but hardly any fields around just busy streets, i found a milk snake yesterday and i wanted to know is this unusual? have their been lots of sitings of them in Mississauga? anyways i'm am thinking it could be a pet that escaped or its wild if it was a pet i am keeping the mofo if its wild i will bring it to a field and release it, the guys driveway it was on well he thought it was a boa, and was going to kill it so i walk up all professional lol like i'm the croc hunter and take out of the net he had it in the buger bit it didn't hurt but then she settled and let me hold her for the rest of the day
neways do you think its wild?

There are some wild milksnakes in Quebec and ontario. Eastern milksnake.
It could be wild, should post some pics, I am sure people would be able to let you know.

seann, eastern milksnakes are very common in mississauga and pretty much most of ontario....
its definietly a wild snake, so my opinion would be definitely release it back were you found it.
congrats on the find!

Matt is correct, they are common in southcentral Ontario but many people don't see them due to their mostly nocturnal nature. They are even found still in some parks in Toronto. Please release it as close as possible to the area it came from, preferably within 50 metres. They have small home ranges and may not find their way back to their hibernacula if they are released farther away. I doubt your neighbour will ever see it again.

Of course, it would be illegal to keep it, as they are a protected species.
