No word on Wessie

The mysterious giant snake of Westbrook Maine is still missing in action even after a snakeskin was found.

Skin recovered from along the Presumpscot Rivers supposedly from Wessie

Results from DNA testing of the shed skin showed that it was fresh and from a green anaconda, a species illegal to keep in Maine. The original sighting was obviously exaggerated. And the shed skin was not consistent with a snake shed and may have been a plant to elevate the hoax.

What does this mean? Well, it means this story just got a bit more interesting and weird.
