Gorilla sighting on Back Road

... Dispatch call ... Somerset Communications Center
... Skowhegan ... Back Road
... 2:40 p.m. ... Aug. 13


Narrative: Caller reports an animal in the field next to Box 121, most likely a gorilla but not sure. Animal is brown/black with long hair.

Narrative: Left message on ACO's (animal control officer) machine.

Narrative: (Officer)... will be all set, has the individual.

Narrative: (Officer).. off at (address) Back Road with male juv. (juvenile)

Narrative: (Officer) ...the juv will remain at home and not be running around.


Translation: A woman in the neighborhood reported seeing an animal that looked like a gorilla. Police and dispatchers said it turned out to be a young man in a "gilly" camouflage suit, which has strips of cloth hanging off it.

He was jumping out in front of cars with a stick.

"Gilly" suit: Leafy or shaggy camouflage suit that disguises the wearer and looks much like a hairy animal.
... Over and out ...
