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, June 22...

1971: Greenville, Mississippi's Delta Democrat Times newspaper reports that local resident Mae Pearl Young recently saw a six-foot-tall biped covered with black hair standing outside her daughter's home at night. The paper offers no further details, omitting even the alleged sighting's exact date.

Greenville's welcome sign neglects to mention Bigfoot as a possible resident, and also omits Byron De La Beckwith, assassin of Medgar Evers in 1963, finally convicted 31 years later.
