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.

LAKE MONSTER CAUSED SHOCK!

Let us go back, reader, to 1910.  J. Gauthier in that year was on his boat on Lake Leelanau, Michigan.  He saw ahead of him what he took to be a log.  Up to it he went (as you do).  Suddenly a pair of eyes opened on the "log" and it dove beneath the waters.  He had disturbed a monster.

I know of no further reports of monster sightings in this lake, but if anyone out there does, do get in touch.
