Fears of a giant snakes are sweeping through Maine after a 10 foot long snake skin shed was found in the woods near Westbrook last month and a 12 foot shed found this week.
Some have taken to labeling the snake or snakes as Wessie.
From the Westbrook Police Department:
Around 3pm today, Saturday, August 20th, a citizen reported finding a shed snake skin, pictured in the attached photograph, along the Presumpscot River near the carry-in boat launch in the area of Riverbank Park.
Westbrook Police Officers responded, photographed, collected, and tagged the skin which will be examined in attempts to determine what type of snake shed it and what risks this type of snake poses to public safety.
Until the type of snake is determined and we can assess the safety risk, we caution people who recreate along the Presumpscot River to remain alert, maintain a safe distance from any wildlife, and report any sightings of the snake to the Westbrook Police Department.
What do you think the skin is from?
A released pet?
A monster snake?
And, how about this pic not taken in Maine.
Is this a fake?
