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.

The Ballad of Bigfoot
to be sung to a Rude Rustic tune.

As I was eating Pickled Gherkins in the Forest one dark night,
Some rustling in the Nearby Trees gave me an Awful Fright,
And then from out the foliage there emerged a Shaggy Shape
And I could not discern if it were Hominid or Ape.

This Beast had an Aroma and to be Completely Frank
It wasn't just a Little Strong, the Beast completely stank.
Its eyes were fierce and furious and not to stay around
I made a resolution and dropped my Gherkins to the Ground.

As I fled me from the Wildwood, the Beast began to howl,
Making noises that I'd never heard from Quadruped or Fowl.
As I pelted through the Foliage like I'd never run before,
I resolved that I would Sojourn in the wilderness no more.

Now the Lesson of my Ditty, which I feel should now be known,
Is that the One Desire of Bigfoot is that he be left alone.
Though the Ouzel and the Greenfinch there may charm you with 
      their song,
If you nose the Scent of Bigfoot, it is time that you were gone.
