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, January 13...

2007: The so-called "Cambodian jungle girl"—in fact an adult human female—emerges from the jungle of Ratanakiri Province, in northeastern Cambodia. A family from a nearby village claims the woman is their daughter Rochom P'ngieng, born in 1979 and missing from home since approximately 1989. Police schedule DNA testing, but the family withdraws consent. For reasons unclear, news media report the incident as discovery of a feral child. Spokesmen for the Cambodian League for the Promotion and Defense of Human Rights suggest the woman "is a victim of some kind of torture, maybe sexual or physical."
