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 DOG KING

You hear of towns from time to time appointing an animal as mayor.  Very understandable, when you consider some politicians.  The Danes, however, had a legend about a dog who became King of Denmark.  It seems King Eadgils of Sweden conquered Denmark and placed a small dog called Raki on the throne.  When he left for home, Eadgils said that whoever brought him tidings of Raki's death would be killed outright.  One day, Raki perceived some big dogs fighting.  Woof! Woof! he observed and joined in the fray, only to be torn to pieces.  Now the question arose as to who would tell King Eadgils.  Eventually a character named Snow was chosen.    Snow realized he would have to proceed with caution, so, when ushered in to King Eadgil's presence, he proceeded to ask him a number of riddles.  The answer to one of them was that the Dog King was dead and Eadgils uttered it.  His decree could not be set aside and King Eadgils was killed.  Satisfied with his mission, Snow returned to Denmark to be offered the Danish throne.

ENFIELD - LEGENDARY AND HERALDIC BEAST

The enfield is the heraldic beast on the coat of arms of the family of Ó Ceallaigh, kings of Ui Maine in Ireland.  King Tadhg Mor (died 1014) was killed at the Battle of Clontarf and, so the legend goes, out of the sea came the Enfield, to protect his body.


The Enfield has been used in various other coats of arms.
