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, March 6 ...

1975: Steve Humphreys and his wife strike a hairy biped with their car, as it runs across a road near Lake Okeechobee, Fla. Despite extensive damage to the vehicle, no trace of the creature is found.

1978: Luke McDaniel, Ruth Gibson, and her son Johnny report a Bigfoot prowling around their rural home near Brewton, Ala.

1984: Cinematic release of Bog, in which dynamite fishing in a swamp revives a prehistoric "gill monster" hungry for the blood of human females.

2008: A basketball-sized chunk of ice crashes through the roof of Welch's Tire Shop in Lula, Georgia. Blaming an overhead aircraft, FAA spokesmen say such incidents are "very, very rare."
