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, February 5...

1983: Former Nazi Gestapo official Klaus Barbie, the "Butcher of Lyon," is brought to trial in France, revealing details of his flight from Europe after World War II and his long, subversive collaboration with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency in South America. Finally convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment in July 1987, he dies in prison on September 23, 1991.
