Another Mystery Snake in Maine

Westbrook, Maine is apparently not the only place in that state where a mystery snake has been spotted…

On September 22, centralmaine.com reported on a sighting of a large snake in Vienna:

"Big snakes in Maine? Maybe.
"First in Cumberland County's Westbrook with 'Wessie,' reportedly an anaconda. Now, in Vienna, a town in Kennebec County with a population of about 570.
"A dispathcer at the Augusta Regional Communications Center said Thursday that someone had called to report a large snake in the town of Vienna.
"The dispatcher said Game Warden Chris McCabe, of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, was sent to investigate, but she could offer so other information.
"Police radio traffic indicated that the snake may have been about 5 feet long, red and tan in color, and possibly hissing at someone.
"Warden McCabe did not immediately return a call Thursday for information on the report. Cpl. John MacDonald, public relations and information officer at the wildlife department, said via email that he had not heard of the report.
"There are only nine species and two sub-species of snakes in Maine, none of them venomous and only one considered endangered.
"The Vienna snake report is not the first in Maine in recent months. Westbrook police said Aug. 20 that a large snake skin was found near a boat launch in Riverbank Park along the Presumpscot River, suggesting that a large snake first spotted earlier in the summer had stayed in the area. They called the snake Wessie.
"Riverbank Park is where two police officers reported in late June that they saw a snake, estimated to be 10 feet long, eating a mammal for its dinner."

What's with all the mystery snakes in Maine this year?

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.

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…

Review - Invasion on Chestnut Ridge

Small Town Monsters' 5th film, Invasion on Chestnut Ridge, comes out soon. STM director Seth Breedlove let me check out an advance copy of the film to put up a review on here. Though I've been quite busy for about the last month and a half, I finally got a chance to check out the film, and these are my thoughts on it.

Invasion is about the strange happenings along the Chestnut Ridge in Pennsylvania. Local residents who have had strange encounters are interviewed, as well as researchers Stan Gordon and Eric Altman.  Along the ridge, witnesses have reported ghost lights, UFOs, Bigfoot, werewolves, thunderbirds, and many, many other odd things.

Many well known sightings happened in the early 1970s, when reports of UFOs and Bigfoot were very frequent. The strangest thing of all this was that sometimes the two would be seen at the same time, or shortly after on another. Some witnesses even saw a white colored Bigfoot that was holding a ball of light.

On another occasion, two Bigfo…
