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.

Mount Vernon lies in Virginia and was supposed to harbor a monster.  However, we cannot be sure of a monster was actually there, because most of the data were audible, not visible.  People would hear wails, coming, as it were, in waves.  They were described as eerie, giving off perhaps a spectral tone.  From the sound of the wails, a wail-making monster was inferred.

When I say the creature wasn't seen, one witness did claim to have observed it.  Thelma Crisp described a creature that conformed to descriptions of Bigfoot.  Whether this was the source of all the noises was a moot point.  The noises do not seem to differ greatly from alleged Bigfoot noises.  Police, using a helicopter, failed to find any trace of the creature. The noises, which started in 1978, seem to have tailed off in the 1980s.  The forested area whence they came is treed no more.  Whatever made the sounds has perhaps moved on.  When they started cutting down the trees, he decided it was time to go.

Mount Vernon today, after deforestation.
