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



On This Day in Weird, October 29...

1811: Farmer John M'Isaac signs an affidavit swearing that he had met a mermaid in Campbeltown, Scotland. He convinces an attorney and two ministers, witnesses to his statement, leaving them "satisfied that he was impressed with a perfect belief, that the appearance of the animal he has described was such as he has represented it to be."



1997: Anton Szandor LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, dies in San Francisco, California, at age 67.
