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, January 24...

1908: Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell founds the Scouting movement in Britain, later diversified into Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, etc. around the world. Ironically, in view of the movement's later epidemic of child-molestation scandals, Baden-Powell is well known for his collection of photos depicting nude boys. Two of his several biographers also suggest a longstanding gay relationship with an adult friend.
