Local Lore

Residents of Lake Bridgeport keep a close eye out for the legendary Chupacabra, a mysterious creature that sucks the blood from cows and goats and has been allegedly spotted throughout the Americas. A maintenance worker around Lake Bridgeport reported to have spotted the creature in 2010, but it turned out to be a hairless raccoon.
