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.

On This Day in Weird, June 17...

1900: Martin Bormann, future private secretary to Adolf Hitler, born in Wegeleben, Germany. He allegedly dies in Berlin on May 2, 1945, but official "identification" of multiple Bormann skulls bolsters rumors of his escape to South America. Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal, at a 1967 press conference, cites "strong evidence" of Bormann's survival.

1980: Farm worker Patrick Poling sees a seven-foot-tall hairy biped crossing a cornfield in Union County, Ohio.
