Some of the local residents thought it was a bear
It can be surprising what secrets are hidden away in some of the local historical society museums.
The return of a supposedly extinct animal, or the ghost of a once–living creature? Who can say for sure. But you can take a little peek at the past at the Weathersfield Hstorical Society’s Museum, just across from the most photographed church in Vermont.
Up the museum stairs and in the shadows of the attic we’re going to look in on something that, in the words of an old account, “ kept the citizens… in an unpleasant state of uneasiness, if not alarm…”
In fact, it was considered something of a MONSTER! But of course this was no monster at all. It was simply doing what it had to in order to survive against the impossible odds of men, dogs, and guns.
