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...

I know that this is pretty well off-topic, but I have just been approached by a TV researcher I know in America who has asked me for some comments. I am flummoxed. Over to you guys...

I think I've seen this video before. I'd like to see the actual video instead of video of the video. I'll see what I can remember/find.

I too have seen this a while back, Ive catagoriesed it as an unknown as the first being seems to slide through the narrow bars of the fence.
Somwhere there is an enhanced closeup of the being and it definately looks humanoid.
There are stranger things in heaven and the earth and i believe this is one of them.
Its actually intersting how technology has helped so much now in theis field as if it wasnt for the security cameras we would just have ignored dogs or a scetchy eyewitness account.

This might well be some weird creature from who knows where, but it might also be a piece of cloth, hung from a wire in front of the camera. Has anyone noticed that the shadow on the ground does not meet the object's 'feet', meaning that what ever it is, is apparently 'floating'.

A walking baseball bat and Gumby.

I'm in agreement. I just can't tell from the video of the video what I'm supposed to be looking at. We should see if we can find the original video in it's fullest resolution. I have a security system and it records everything as MPEG video.

If we had the original MPEG video, and could do some processing on it, we might have something.

If it's a not an outright hoax, it could be quite fascinating.
