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 25...

1972: Police in Tazewell County, Illinois, receive more than 200 phone calls reporting encounters with "Cohomo"—the "Cole Hollow Road Monster"—said to be a shaggy creature covered with white hair, suspected of living beneath an abandoned house on the road in question. Hysteria continues through July, and is later repeated in 2006, but patrols by law enforcement and armed vigilantes find nothing. In at least one sighting from 1972, a UFO was also reported nearby.
