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, November 26...

2002: "Loveable trickster" Raymond L. Wallace, a notorious Sasquatch hoaxer since the late 1950s, dies at age 84 in Centralia, Washington. Surviving relatives try to cash in on his passing by spreading ludicrous tales that he "invented Bigfoot" and that "Bigfoot just died." To their everlasting discredit, most mainstream journalists swallow and repeat the lie without even minimal fact-checking.
