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, May 14...

1804: Explorers Lewis and Clark set out from St. Louis, Missouri, on their epic journey to the Pacific coast. Prior to departure, President Thomas Jefferson asks then to watch for living specimens of the prehistoric ground sloth Megalonyx.



1974: LAPD officers and FBI agents annihilate leaders of the Symbionese Liberation Army. Rumors persist that the radical group grew out of CIA mind-control experiments performed on California prison inmates.
