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...

MUIRHEAD`S MYSTERIES: A TIGER IN HONG KONG?


File:2012 Suedchinesischer Tiger.JPGIt`s been a long time since any remotely genuine case of a tiger in Hong Kong has occurred (since the 1960s)  but a couple of weeks back, a scare in the Tai Po area of the former colony of Britain briefly stirred interest in the Hong Kong media. Any definite evidence (and this is not) would be remarkable indeed as the surviving number of South China tigers in the wild could probably be counted by less than the number of fingers of one human hand and that`s being optimistic.

The link below was found by myself on the Hong Kong Wildlife.net Forum and shows some scientist types measuring spoor and a small-ish mammal, very unclear, moving around in undergrowth.
