A blog for the United States branch of the global Centre for Fortean Zoology
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.

PERHAPS I'LL SEE EWE.
I see a story in circulation about my native land. The Golden Shears World Championship, which, if you haven't guessed, is an international sheep-shearing competition is to be held in Ireland this year, from May 22nd-26th. The event will be in Gorey (County Wexford). The organizers are somewhat short of ewes at present. They need about 1000 more. The word ewe is pronounced yoe in Ireland and yow in Scotland, a fact to remember if you're talking to natives of either country.
