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



On This Day in Weird, March 14...

1973: Three U.S. Marines report a Bigfoot sighting on a highway outside Lancaster, California, claiming the eight-foot-tall creature ran in front of their car.

2008: Several large chunks of ice crash through the roof of Weber Marking Systems in Arlington Heights, Illinois. FAA spokesmen tell reporters, "We are still unsure if this came from an aircraft. We are looking at aircraft over the area at that time trying to determine if it’s a leak. This is an extremely rare event."

2010: Actor Peter Graves, best known to cryptozoology buffs as narrator of The Mysterious Monsters (1976), dies at home in Pacific Palisades, California, at age 83. His other outré films include Red Planet Mars, Killers from Space, It Conquered the World, Beginning of the End, Attack of the Eye Creatures, Scream of the Wolf, Where Have All the People Gone, The Clonus Horror, and Addams Family Values.
