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.

Anthony Padilla of Midland County (Michigan) discerned on his property a creature he suspected was Bigfoot and went over to have a closer look.  Yes, it was a red-eyed hominid.  He has now been trying to gather evidence to support his sighting.  He has collected excrement, which can be a great deal of fun.  He has also tried to lure the beast, presumably to photograph it, with pizzas.  Bigfoot seems to have taken the pizzas, but avoided the camera.  He has a particular liking for Mexican and Chinese.

As I'm writing this in Ireland, I thought I'd mention the Blessington Beast, a controversial animal allegedly spotted in Ireland about a year ago.  A fisherman in County Wicklow claims he saw it and has taken a rather indistinct video.  You can see this if you go to
