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, September 22...

First, playing catch-up from yesterday, as I unaccountably missed the birthdays of H. G. Wells (1886) and Stephen King (1941). Mea culpa, fright fans!

As for today in history...

1965: Two couples parked in a "lover's lane" called Montezuma Hills, outside Decatur, Illinois, report a "massive, black manlike shape" traipsing around their car in the darkness, emitting a foul odor. The witnesses flee and contact police, whose search of the area turns up nothing.
