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.

I am not sure that I actually think this was a dog.  I feel it might have been an altogether different creature.  That doesn't mean I know what it is.  It was seen in Magalia (California) in 1966.  Sheila Charles and her son, Shane, were driving along when it crossed the road in front of their car.  Its neck was perhaps 30 inches in length and it was topped by a snakelike head.  It had short front legs, back legs that were perhaps longer and boasted black and shaggy fur.  It did not have a tail.  Another motorist confirmed the sighting.

Although I cannot guess what these people saw, its description sounds somehow plausible and I do not rule out the possibility that it was a known animal that they failed to identify.  Perhaps some of our readers could proffer suggestions?
