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



On This Day in Weird, August 21...

1919: New York's Syracuse Daily Journal reports: "Farmers living near Union Springs have become alarmed over an animal which roves about their farms. It has been seen by people living in the vicinity of Big Gulf, south of Union Springs, and is said to have a head like a lion. A cow owned by John Redman had its tail half bitten off one night recently, and it is thought to be the work of the strange beast. Farmers are getting their shotguns and pistols in working condition and expect to go out on hunting expeditions."



1955: Small UFO occupants with large heads, prominent ears, and luminous torsos reportedly lay siege to a rural home near Hopkinsville, Kentucky, sparking a night of fear and promiscuous, futile gunfire.
