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.

In the 19th Century, a couple of strange creatures were reported from Bracken County (Kentucky).  In 1866 there was a report of a creature variously compared with an elephant, horse or other creature.  It had large paws, claws, cloven hooves, horns and a dart-shaped end to its tail.

In 1868 another strange creature was reported in the county.  It was said to be 6 feet tall, with hair and tail composed of flame, resembling a man above the waist and a horse below, exuding fiery breath.

Make of these reports what you will.
