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, April 30...

1812: Speculative birth date assigned to Kaspar Hauser, the mystery youth found in Nuremberg, Germany, in May 1828, bearing a cryptic note addressed to a cavalry officer he had never met. Kaspar spins a strange tale of captivity, held prisoner by persons unknown, until his equally mysterious release bearing the letter.



2009: Crew members of the science vessel RV Roger Revelle find the sailboat Lunatic adrift and abandoned off the coast of Australia, with no trace of elderly Slovenian owner-pilot Jure ┼áterk aboard. ┼áterk had been engaged in a one-man trip Before that discovery, the Lunatic was last seen under sail on January 26.
