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 screams of the Suscon Screamer feature in the folklore of Pennsylvania.  The Susquehanna Railroad Bridge, now gone, was the focus of the legends.  These legends seem to have started around 1900.

Just who or what gave tongue to the screams is a matter of uncertainty.  A female ghost has been reported from the area and some ascribe them to her.  Another version says there is a lion out there.  There has also been a report of Bigfoots.

One of the creepiest reports concerns a creature apparently seen by a hunter.  It was a creature 6' long witha long snout and webbed feet.  The head of this creature was huge.  Although somewhat piglike, it had claws instead of trotters.

There are several versions of the legend.  There may be more than one explanation for the screams.  From other sources Bigfoot has been reported to scream.  If you continue to be curious, there is a great deal of information on the subject on the Web.
