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 28...

1965: Two prospectors report a Sasquatch encounter from Pitt Lake, 25 miles northeast of Vancouver, British Columbia. Working at the 4,000-foot level, they first note humanoid footprints in snow, measured at 24 inches long and 12 inches wide at the base of the toes. Following that trail, which includes strange drag marks beside the footprints, they see an "enormous" bipedal creature watching them from the lake's far side. Later comparing it to nearby trees, the men estimate its height between 10 and 15 feet. Several days later, one prospector returns to the site in a helicopter, with a newspaper reporter. They find another set of tracks leading to the edge of a cliff, but nothing below.
