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, June 3...

1943: The "zoot suit riots" begin in Los Angeles, with U.S. Navy seamen, marines, and white civilians attacking Mexican Americans on public streets, beating them and stripping off the stylized clothing favored by young minority men of the era. LAPD officers arrive in time to arrest the victims for assault. Nothing Fortean here, but still deeply weird.
