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.

HAVE YOU SEEN AN ALBAWITCH?

Chickies Rock
Chickies Rock (Pennsylvania) is supposed to have some interesting inhabitants called albawitches.  These are described as humanoid and are said to keep largely to the trees.  They were also supposed to be fond of apples.

Rumor had it that they became extinct in the 19th Century, but they have been reported since then.  They are said to be between 5' and 6' in height and, though described as sticklike, they are covered in hair.

There was an alleged sighting of albawitches in 2002.  However, you don't have to see them to know they are there, according to local folklore.  If you hear a cracking noise in the woods, that is made by albawitches.
