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.

Bears became extinct in England in medieval times or earlier, so it was a surprise for centenarian  Edmund Anstey when, in 1844, the following encounter occurred in Somerset.

He was making his way home on horseback when a gigantic bear, surrounded by a circle of light, burst out, perhaps from a hedge or bank.  The bear, however, did the horseman no harm.  To judge from the circle of light, it may have been a preternatural bear.  Its sudden appearance may show it had broken through from another dimenbsion.
