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, July 6...

1977: Three witnesses at the Abilene Boys' Ranch, near Hawley, Texas, claim a threatening encounter with a local Bigfoot dubbed the "Hawley Him." Teenage campers Tom Roberts and Larry Suggs allegedly suffer the attack, with one rock striking Suggs's leg. They flee to a nearby home and return with resident Renee McFarland, armed with a rifle, firing one shot at the beast before it escapes, leaving behind 12-inch footprints and a "rotten smell." Many other locals report sightings of the monster during 1977, but hunting parties fail to track it down.
