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.

We have mentioned alleged centaur sightings before and have expressed doubts that a traditionally centaur-like body would be biologically viable.  I mean, would it have two digestive tracts, for example.  But encounters with centaurs or similar beings are occasionally reported, as in the present instance.

This event was said to have occurred in West Jefferson, Ohio.  It was red in color, appeared to be half man and half horse and had, moreover, a pair of wings.  It is not clear how many legs the creature had.  Its head and ears were pointed - in the case of the head, I am not sure what that is supposed to mean.  It had a beard.  When it ran off, it left cloven hoofprints, while traditional centaurs have horses' hooves.  The incident took place in 1980.

 Make of this report what you will.  (The heraldic device above shows a traditional centaur).
