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.

MONSTER OF LAKE HODGES

Lake Hodges lies in California, 31 miles north of San Diego, which city owns it, as it is both lake and reservoir.  The lake is on the san Dieguito River.  In 1916 the Lake Hodges Project was begun.  Indians warned those in authority that there was a monster in the lake.  As the years passed, whites claimed to have seen the creature too.  One claimed to have discerned a lizard-like head.  It was decided to set a trap for the monster in 1932.  A sea-lion was placed in a cage was placed in the water. The sea-lion disapppeared, but no monster was trapped.  In 1956 the lake was poisoned to get rid of its fish population.  Then it was restocked.  However, the monster, if it existed, may not have been killed by the poison, for in 1966 picnickers spotted a strange creature in the lake and a photograph of a hump was taken.
