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, August 11...

1968: Witnesses Tim Bullock and Barbara Smith are driving northeast of Chittyville, Illinois (Williamson County), at 8:30 p.m., when a Bigfoot allegedly throws dirt at them through an open car window. Smith describes the attacker as "huge," some 10 feet tall, with a head "as large as a steering wheel." They speed off, but Bullock returns the next day to find a depression in the roadside grass, suggesting a large animal had lain there. Aside from this incident, Chittyville—an unincorporated community in Herrin Township—is best known for its "haunted" school, allegedly built atop an old graveyard, which has drawn various ghost hunters over time. Vickie King, creator of a website advertising the legend, told reporters in 2005, "I fabricated it. All the information on the website is completely made up."
