WESTBROOK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It was bound to happen.
The Westbrook snake, dubbed Wessie or the “Presumpscot Python” by locals was last seen in the area of Riverbank Park Wednesday morning.
Police say the snake was eating a large mammal, possibly a beaver. A second officer arrived and they both watched it swim across the river to the Brown Street side of the Presumpscot River where it disappeared in the thick underbrush.
Police say they estimate its length to be at least 10 feet.
And of course he is now on Twitter, documenting his life:
God I think I ate too much for breakfast. Going to take about a two day nap. Hissssssssssssss.#westbrooksnake 🐍🐍🐍— Wessie P. Thon (@WessieThon) June 29, 2016
And roasting Twitter users, including NEWS CENTER's Todd Gutner!
I have no thumbs. I can't. Speaking of things that are not to be believed, what's your forecast for the weekend? https://t.co/nDRGwuNZ2S— Wessie P. Thon (@WessieThon) June 29, 2016
It also seems Wessie and the Portland Porcupine are now "BFFs"
We should talk...maybe have coffee? You look delicious. https://t.co/yJU7XQ7kk8— Wessie P. Thon (@WessieThon) June 29, 2016
Police ask the public to be mindful of the snake’s presence in the area and immediately report any sightings so they can remove the animal from the river.
