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 5...

2005: Members of an unnamed family in rural Forrest County, Mississippi—named for the "grand wizard" of the original Ku Klux Klan—allegedly experience the first in a series of Sasquatch sightings and related incidents continuing "all times of day and night" through April 6, 2006. They describe one creature as roughly seven feet tall, covered with brown hair, apparently weighing 400 to 500 pounds. Another seems to be "a very curious juvenile," four to five feet tall, weighing about 100 pounds. In addition to physical sightings, they report wood-knocking sounds, "heavy breathing," and "charges" through the forest undergrowth.
