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 26...

1945: Coal miners trapped by an underground explosion near Fourmile, Kentucky, report seeing a "door" open in one wall of the shaft, emitting bright light and a man dressed as a "lumberjack." He tells the miners they'll be rescued safely, then goes back inside the "room" and shuts the door.



1947: Three girls report a sighting of the Virgin Mary at Pleskop, near Vannes, France.
