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.

Bigfoot without pants

I found this interesting story on the Weird NJ website.  Back in the 70s (remember them?) a number of campers were camping (well, that's what campers do) and night had cast its ebony cloak over the landscape when they claim they found themselves confronted by a Bigfoot.  It was hairy, about 7' in height and stank.  The unusual thing about it was that it was wearing trousers.  True, they were trousers that had seen better days, but trousers, nonetheless.  The creature was covered with blood.  It attacked one of the three campers, but took flight after one of them discharged a rifle.

I just wonder if this actually was a Bigfoot or some unhappy lunatic wandering the wilderness. It's the trousers which fuel the suspicion.  Bigfeet are not noted for what I might describe as sartorial accoutrements.  Yet who is to say some Bigfoot didn't happen to see a pair of trousers hanging on some clothes line and feel that here was just the thing to protect his nether regions when cold winds blew?  I would not say it was impossible.
