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.

The writer Porta, who flourished in the 17th Century, draws our attention to a very curious animal indeed, for which he furnishes no description.  This is a beast called the sargon.  However, humans apparently liked to eat the sargon, whatever it was, because fishermen hunted it in a peculiar manner, which is not adopted by the piscatorial fraternity today.

You see, sargons wanted to have sex with goats.  If they saw goats on the shoreline, thither they would come with amorous expectations.  Noting this, fishermen would disguise themselves as goats and the sargons, who don't seem to have been too discerning, would come towards them, only to be ensnared.

We do not know what real creature, if any, lies behind the sargon.  Anyone with any ideas out there in crypto world?
