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 23...

1982: While fishing from a boat near the Union/Calhoun County in Arkansas, a man and his teenage grandson smell an odor like "a sort of a garbage, urine, skunk smell," then see "a large, maybe a little over 7 ft, hairy looking man, attempting to hide behind a large cypress tree" at the water's edge. The youth is armed, but his grandfather warns him against shooting. Twenty-five years later, writing to the GCBRO website, the former youth describes the creature in more detail: "I would say the thing was 7 ft at least, maybe between that and 7'4", and weighed close to 500 lb. It was huge. I was 6'1" and 250 lb. back then, and it was at least 2 of me. Dark black hair, not really fur, about 4-6" over the body, except for eyes palms and feet. Was thin in the butt. Skin was a darker color, but I don't know if that was from dirt, or the color. Massive muscles all over. Its head was kind of rounded, no point, and looked kind of small for his size."
