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.

From time to time a cryptid turns up that cannot be identified.  Indeed, it need not be a cryptid at all: it could simply be an animal with which the witness is unfamiliar.  Such a one is the Pig-Ear-Eater of Bay Springs (Mississippi).

This creature was black and gray with a shaggy tail.  It was nearly as tall as a human's waist, a variable kind of estimate.  It would attack pigs, but eat only their ears.  It seems to have carried out its depredations in 1977.  What it was remains a mystery.
