Presumpscot River: Giant Snake Skin Found Near Maine River #HNNEnvironment

Credits: Facebook (Westbrook Police)
Westbrook Police have been cautioning residents and looking for a 10-foot snake, dubbed "Wessie," since it was first spotted near a playground in June. Its skin was found around 3 p.m. Saturday. 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.
