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.

GHASTLY STORY OF STRANGE BEAST

It is alleged to have happened in Ireland during World War I.  (In those days Ireland was ruled by the British.)    The story tells how a number of people were wiped out by this creature in "Ibradden" Pine Forest.  I know of no such wood, but I suspect Tibradden Pine Forest is meant.  This lies in the Dublin Mountains.
