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, December 30...

1916: Conspirator seeking to liberate the Russian monarchy from "mad monk" Grigori Rasputin assassinate the libidinous "prophet," with considerable effort, in Saint Petersburg. (Old Style calendars log his murder on December 17).



1974: A female motorist runs over "a metallic spider" near the Turnpike Bridge in Gibsonia, Pennsylvania. She describes the think as 12 inches tall, with eight jointed legs and a body that glowed in the beams from her headlights. Her husband returns to the site soon afterward but finds nothing.
