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.

This lake (area 46 square miles) lies in New York state.  In days of yore, the Indians held that this lake contained a great monster.  Not only did it live in the lake, but it could also cross the land.  The coming of the paleface, however, has led to this lake's becoming appallingly polluted.  Any monster surviving in there would need to have the most astounding powers of endurance.  Yet in 1977, cub scouts reported a monster in this lake.  They said it looked like a dragon.

Onondaga Lake
According to tradition, the Iroquois Confederation was formed at this lake.  The modern-day Onondaga have a 'Vision for a Clean Onondaga Lake in the 21st Century'.  This sounds highly commendable.  I'm sure any resident monster would appreciate it too.
