WELCOME TO THE CFZ BLOG NETWORK: COME AND JOIN THE FUN

Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

THE TRUE STORY OF THE BOARMAN OF SEMINOLE WOODS!

Hello! My Name is Michael Lovero and I have a very 'Strange - But True' story to tell you. A few years ago me and my then girlfriend were driving down Seminole Woods in Palm Coast FL. It was about 8:00 or 8:30PM at night when something ran right in front of our car! Its eyes reflected off the lights of the car, and my girlfriend, who was driving at the time, slammed on the brakes!

We both just sat there quietly for a moment, trying to take in what we both knew that we had just seen. Now I just started dating her not too long ago, so not wanting to sound stupid, I thought that I'd ask her what she saw first.

I said to her, "Did you just see that?"

And she said, "yeah!"

I said, "Well,what did you see?"

She said, "It looked like a big wild boar running on two feet."

And I said, "Yeah, that's what I saw too!"

Only this thing had a human kinda body to it, only it had a boar's head, hands and feet. And it was covered all over with real dark fur. It stood about 5 feet and looked really mean and creepy! I know it sounds real stupid, but it was the scariest thing I ever saw! So we went home and told my family about it, and just as I thought, they just laughed and rightfully so. It is a stupid tale, for someone who hasn't seen it.

So I went on about my business and tried to put it in the back of my mind. But it always bugged me. I mean, this thing is running around Seminole Woods and nobody but me and my girlfriend has seen this? Somebody had to have seen this thing! We both can't be the only ones.

But I forgot about it until a few years later, when I got the answer to my question. I worked over at Palm Coast Data a while back, and I worked with a guy that we called Bone Baby. Well, one night Bone Baby came to work, and was very out of character. He was very quiet and looked kinda pale. We went outside for a smokebreak. I don't smoke, but I always went outside with them anyway just to talk a bit. Anyway, everyone's talking and Bone Baby's standing all alone in a corner and not saying anything. He always joined our conversation any other time, so we asked him if he was feeling well.

He said, "Guys... if I tell you something do you promise not to laugh?"

Curious, we promised not to. He said that he was staying over his friend's house in Seminole Woods, when they decided to go outside late that night and have themselves a smoke (and NO it was NOT POT). He said they seen something coming out of the canal.

Right there I stopped him, and I said, "Did it look like a Giant Boar standing on two feet?"

He turned white as a ghost, and said, "Dude, how the f*** did you know that?"

I said, "Because me and my girlfriend seen the same thing a few years ago."

He told me it had red eyes. When I seen it, I couldn't tell because the lights of our car hit them, and they reflected white. But anyway, now that I know that someone else has seen it, I have to know... Has anyone else seen this BoarMan in Seminole Woods?

A great report! I have never heard or seen anything like that when I have traveled to Florida. Let us know if you ever see it again or you hear someone has seen it.

By the way, your description of the creature is vaguely familiar to my ex-wife.

Thank you for the interesting and entertaining report! A suggestion to impress your friends the next time this happens: reply "A ladyfriend and I observed a similar cryptozoological phenomenon several years ago." (Just kidding).

In Vermont, where I live, there is a story of a pigman, sort of like what you described. It took place a while back, but the details are almost the same. Except in this story the Pigman is covered with white hair, like a domestic pig. He has a pig's snout, eyes, and hands and feet. There is a whole back story too, but it's too long to write here.
