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.

Strange things seem to have been on the wing in Chile in 2004.  Near Arica the de la Torre family, driving at night, encountered dog-faced kangaroo like creatures that could fly.  Meanwhile two dog-faced winged creatures attacked one Juan Acuna in the same year.  One of the beasts was large, the other small.  They were very strong.  Local official Ricardo Encins said Acuna's wounds were genuine.

Were these the same kind of animal?  The description of the animals that attacked Acuna did not include kangaroolity, but that doesn't mean it wasn't there.  Could these creatures be in any way related to the Jersey Devil?  I found no mention of horns.  We shall just have to await further reports of such creatures.
