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.

If you live in the vicinity of Trussville, Alabama, you may be aware of its legendary creature which is referred to as the White Thing.  This animal is said to be tall as a man, from which we may infer that it is bipedal.  It is covered in fur as white as snow.  It has fierce claws and gives loud screams.  The killings of cattle and chickens were ascribed to it.

In 1949 there was a hunt for it.  The pursuers chased it as far as Roper Hill, then lost it.

This sounds as though it might be a white Bigfoot to me, though the claws are inconsistent with such an identification.  The screams, on the other hand, would incline one in a Bigfoot direction.  Tales of this creature go back for 150 years.
