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.

The Cracker Dog Killer was a noteworthy animal of Florida, but questions arise as to what it was and whether it is still out there.  It was in the habit of killing off dogs which tried to investigate its dwellings with their noses.  What was it and was it a single animal or a population?

The latter seems likely.  You rarely find animal species with a population of one.  If a dog came near its den, the Dog Killer would eat it and fastidiously leave its bones in a pile nearby, including the skull.

A tidy cryptid, I'm sure you'll say.
