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.

ST PATRICK'S DAY IN WEIRD


On This St. Patrick's Day in Weird, March 17...

1977: A motorist reports a Bigfoot sighting outside Alliance, Ohio. The creature allegedly stepped over a roadside fence and approached the driver's van, seemingly unafraid of its headlights.




2000: Freaky religion strikes again. 778 members of the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God die in Uganda. Initial theories calling the deaths a mass suicide are revised when many of the decomposed bodies exhumed from mass graves reveal stab wounds and signs of strangulation.
