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, May 15...

1977:  Canadian bus driver and reserve Vancouver city police officer Pat Lindquist, with six of his bus passengers, reports seeing a 7-foot-tall, 300-pound Sasquatch a mile east of Lake Erroch on the Harrison Hot Springs-to-Vancouver run. Ten days later, four individuals confess on radio to perpetrating the hoax, using a gorilla suit purchased for $200. The "actor" in the suit measured 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighed only 165 pounds.
