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, March 18....

2003: I married my lovely wife Heather at Fort Augustus, Scotland, overlooking Loch Ness. Elsewhere...

1976: The Alton (Illinois) Telegraph reports that an "ape" recently seen near Moro has been "added to [the] area's list of animalistic spooks." Others include the "Gooseville Bear," sighted in August 1949, a "great snake" from East Alton, and "a seven-foot-tall man-beast with long white shaggy hair periodically reported between Marine and Edwardsville." All those mysterious beasts were apparently confined to Madison County, fertile ground for monster hunters!
