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.

On This Day in Weird, February 8...

1855: Hoof-like "devil's footprints" appeared in snow overnight across Devon and Dorset, in England, spanning a distance of 40 to 100 miles by various reports. The prints measured four inches long by three inches wide, separated by eight to sixteen inches and appearing to travel in single file from Exmouth, up to Topsham, across the Exe Estuary to Dawlish and Teignmouth. En route, they crossed over homes, haystacks, rivers and other obstacles, appearing on roofs, leading up to and exiting from drain pipes as narrow as four inches in diameter. Several sightings of a "devil-like figure" were also reported, but armed hunting parties found nothing.
