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.

THIS DAY IN WEIRD


On This Day in Weird, February 28...

1934: The 25-foot Cherbourg Carcass washes ashore at Querqueville, France. At length, Dr. Georges Petit of the Paris Museum determines it to be a decomposed basking shark.

1963: Pilots Alden Hoover and Lennart Strand spot a 10-foot-tall "half bear, half gorilla" walking on its hind legs near Sonora, California. Their aerial photos prove too blurry for interpretation.

2010: An unnamed youth reports a Bigfoot sighting at Dixon, Illinois.
