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...

JONATHAN MCGOWAN: A Monster from Dorset

Please find attached picture of a monster that I came across whilst driving near my home in Dorset. I at first thought that it was a sandbag, but then realized that it had a leg. On close inspection, I realized that it was a deformed badger; no hair, no back legs but extended body. It may have been Siamese but then been eaten. Deer are usually killed along this stretch of road and are scavenged by the local leopards and maybe they had a few bites out of this also. It would certainly seem as though something has feasted on its hindquarters.

It also was totally hairless, had flop over ears, its fore left leg had too much muscle on it, and its skin was white. How it managed to survive I will never know.You may have seen it on my website but just in case you have not I thought that i must send it to you all.

MUIRHEAD`S MYSTERIES: A YEREN STATUE IN A MACCLESFIELD ANTIQUE SHOP?

Hello! A short while ago I found an approximately 2 feet high statue, of a Yeren type hominid or Wild Man of the Woods, in the Aladdin`s Cave Antique Shop at 29 Park Lane, Macclesfield,SK11 6TJ. This was the same place I bought a jackalope, which I featured in my blog several weeks ago.

Garth the owner is selling this Wildman for £40 not including postage. My idea that it looks like the Yeren is based on this link: http://www.cryptomundo.com/wp-content/uploads/yeren11.jpg


TIME OUT FOR FUN

By DEVO

Hello this is Devo

We would like to say
Things go both ways
New ideas stupid moves
Nightmares or dreams come true

Mucho work minus play

Tension mounts in a twisted face
Dark clouds in the crystal ball
Tension mounts in a foreign place
The screw turns someone calls

Time out for fun
