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...

Recently the Supreme Court in the US voted not to ban videos showing graphic violence to animals, including filmed dog fights. They said that such a ban would violate the constitutional right to free speech!

If the US Constitution includes allowing videos of animal violence then screw the US Constitution.
How can a 'civilised' country think that banning films of deliberate cruelty to animals is an attack of free speech? This is stupid, even by the standards of international legislators.

Tell the Supreme Court what spineless, backward, cowardly morons they are here....

This is one of the most shocking verdicts I ever heard of. Just what free speech is being banned? The howls of canine pain?

Is dogfighting itself illegal in the United States? Would a video of people duelling to the death be distributable due to this interpretation of free speech? It doesn't do much for my faith in humanity.
