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 2...

1897: Witnesses Bob Forner and Charles Luskins allegedly came to grips with a curly-haired Sasquatch near Rome, Ohio, but failed in their barehanded effort to capture it. Cleveland's Plain Dealer newspaper reported their exploit the following day. Skeptics regard the story as an example of 19th-century "silly season" journalistic hoaxing.
