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...

CRYPTOLINK: Weston Homeowner Captures The 'Georgetown Bear' On Video

A word about cryptolinks: we are not responsible for the content of cryptolinks, which are merely links to outside articles that we think are interesting (sometimes for the wrong reasons), usually posted up without any comment whatsoever from me. 

The 'Georgetown Bear' walks through a yard in Weston. WESTON, Conn. -- It may not be the same as spotting the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot, but a Weston woman reportedly has captured video of the "Georgetown Bear.” 
The black bear was captured July 21 on video by Ann Kyle, according to a story on thewestonforum.com.
The bear meandered around Kyle's yard, sniffed a baseball on the ground and then walked off into the woods, according to the story. 
Kyle called Weston Animal Control Officer Mark Harper, who said the bear matched the description of “The Georgetown Bear,” a black bear residents have reported seeing in the Georgetown Road section of Weston, according to the story.
Read the full story here at the Weston Forum.
