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, December 24..

1909: Sisters Eve, Gladys and Gwen Ruffle wake in the bedroom of their home, in Fernhurst, West Sussex, drawn to a light in the night sky outside. From their window, they behold "two golden doves" flying close together, an "angel" appearing when their wingtips touch. After several moments, the angel disappears and the doves fade more slowly.



1965: An unnamed man wakes in his home at Oroville, California, to the sound of a "bouncing ball" in his bedroom. Sitting up, he sees a short, elf-like figure standing at the foot of his bed, grinning from ear to ear. Before diving under his covers, the witness notices the creature's "odd and rough" appearance, but misses its departure while hiding.
