Man Notices Something Odd Coming Out Of A Bush, Pulls On It - Discovers Something Huge

Apparently, police in Westbrook, Maine watch a lot of movies, especially horror movies. Related to this, the Westbrook Police Department recently released a warning to the public that a large snake seen in a local river over the last few months is likely still in the vicinity. They issued the warning because a large snakeskin was discovered near a public boat launch.

The snakeskin was reportedly found on the ground in a local park along the Presumpscot River just a few yards away from the launch.

In late June, a Westbrook police officer filed a report about a 10-foot-long snake he saw eating a small furry mammal, and then crossed the Presumpscot River before slipping into nearby brush. Local residents were concerned after the snake sighting this summer as their children often swim and feed ducks nearby.

The clearly non-native giant snake has been nicknamed Wessie and the Presumpscot Python by local media and residents of the area posting on social media. According to zoologists, a snake of that size is almost certainly a pet that had escaped or released by its owner.

In what seems like a waste of taxpayer dollars to this writer, the snakeskin is being tested to find out what type of snake it came from, and if it could be any kind of a real threat to the public.
