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.

Lake County, California, was the scene of an encounter with a strange felid in 1868.  It was shot by one Archie McNab.  It did not look like a puma: its physique was somewhat different.  It was heavier to the fore and, while its coloration could generally be reconciled with that of a puma, it had stripes on its shoulders and front.  These resembled a mane.  Is this an example of the American lion?  At this juncture, who can say?
