"Wessie" Update - Westbrook's Giant Snake Goes Into Hiding

Earlier this month I posted a piece on the sightings of a giant snake, dubbed "Wessie" or the "Presumpscot Python,' which has supposedly been seen around Westbrook, Maine.

Apparently Wessie has gone into hiding after the first few sightings, when a woman said she saw a snake "as big as a truck," a second witness said he saw a snake "as long as a bench," and two police officers saw it eating a beaver. The police thought that the snake might go into hiding after eating its big meal. It apparently did just that.

The latest news articles I can find on the sightings say that Wessie has not been seen for about a week. Police, their animal control officer, and the Maine Warden Service have all been watching for the snake.

Police Captain Steven Goldberg said:

"I never thought we'd be all over the nation for this, but it's certainly happened. We're aware of it. We're trying our best to locate it, while at the same time, we're dealing with a lot of other things that are going on, too, so we're trying to balance both things at the same time."

Police have warned people to be aware of their surroundings.

Wessie hasn't stopped people from going to concerts in the area where he/she was seen, though. (If I lived in the area the snake sightings would probably be the reason I would want to go!)

If there is any more about Wessie the snake in the future, I'll update things.

Will Wessie return?

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.
