Whale noticed in Sheepscot River was humpback

Some Wiscasset residents and guests could also be relieved to be taught they’ll, in truth, consider their eyes. That was certainly a humpback whale seen swimming within the Sheepscot River close to Wiscasset on Aug. 24.

The uncommon sighting attracted consideration from state and regional media retailers and prompted a flurry of curiosity from native photographers, who captured dozens of images and movies of the humpback whale.

Wiscasset City Supervisor Dennis Simmons didn’t fairly consider it till he noticed the humpback whale together with his personal eyes Thursday afternoon.
