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.

These observations are two things I've noticed about Bigfoot reports that don't seem to be emphasized elsewhere.

Bigfoots have a tendency to plait the hair of horses.  A somewhat similar tendency is noted among European Otherworldly Fairy beings.  Is there a connection?  If so, what is it?

The second one is the Bigfoot tendency to whistle.  Do they actually communicate by whistling.  When the Canary Islands were first discovered by Europeans, the inhabitants, apart from speaking the Guanche language, had developed a whistling language, Silbo.  It is still whistled there, but I think it is now based on Spanish, the Guanche language being extinct.  Could the Hairy Ones have a whistling language?

Another thing I've noticed: Bigfeet and Russian wildmen seem to have a singular aversion to dogs.  Why this should have developed I cannot say.  The current thinking seems to be that dogs are not directly descended from wolves, but are a related animal and have interbred with them.  The indications seem to be that dogs were domesticated  in hunter-gatherer times.  Were they a significant defense against attacks by wildmen?  Any answer to the enmity between wildman and dog can at this stage only be speculative.
