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...

she talks with animals deceased, in person. So she talks to dead people also? People are animals last I checked but maybe not to the Nazis?

I live outside the Twin Cities Minnesota where this company is located. There was a lady in this area who recently was arrested for killing her dog, throwing it against the wall after the dog peed on her. Then other ladies protested at her court hearing demanding she get the full punishment -- 2 years in jail.

The University of Minnesota was the leader in eugenics in the 1930s -- with the professor praising Hitler. The University taught that we should raise a better "man-crop."

So this pet speaking business makes sense considering the Nazis were experts in talking to their dogs as well:
