Presumpscot River: Giant Snake Skin Found Near Maine River

Presumpscot River: Giant Snake Skin Found Near Maine River

WESTBROOK, Maine — Westbrook police are warning residents after a large snake skin was found near the Presumpscot River on Saturday.


Police said a resident reported finding a shed snake skin along the Presumpscot River around 3 p.m. near the carry-in boat launch in the area of Riverbank Park.

Westbrook police officers photographed, collected and tagged the skin, which will be examined in attempts to determine what type of snake it came from and what risks this type of snake poses to public safety.

Police say until the type of snake is determined and police can assess the safety risk, they are cautioning 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.

This comes after two Westbrook police officers spotted a 10-foot snake eating a large mammal along the riverbank in Riverbank Park in June.
