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...

This reminded me of the manimal! And the cannibal story in Three Men Seeking Monsters...

He looks to be fishing, the River Lym and the River Axe both flow through the area plus there are five small freshwater lakes in Uplyme that are regularly stocked with Rainbow Trout.

Definite man in a costume-big head, short arms and rather slight build. In each case the opposite of what you see in the Patterson film.

I don't know if this person is even being purposefully malicious doing this, but try walking around in the woods like that in the USA and you shall be in definite danger of getting your head blown off.

There is nothing to fear folks, it was only someone Jon persuaded (leaned on) to wander around advertising the Weird weekend.
