At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

OUT OF PLACE?

Speaking of out of place felids, Ammelin Haddad, resident of Santiago, Chile, was making breakfast when she noticed she was not alone.  Present in the kitchen also was a puma.  I don't know the statistics for wild pumas in Chile, but one in the kitchen is certainly out of place.  Mrs Haddad did not remain in the kitchen, which the puma proceeded to wreck and it took several tranquiliser darts to end its career of destruction.

The more we destroy the habitat of animals, the likelier we are to find them on our doorstep.
