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...

DOUBTFUL NEWS: bigfoot


Woman keeps hair she believes is from Bigfoot. She thinks they are out there and being killed. This story has a rather interesting twist, I found.
Betty Klopp has been holding on to these strands of hair and bits of skin for nearly 45 years.
“Of course I’ve kept it,” Klopp told KPIC News. “I wouldn’t give it up for anything.”
She believes the clumps came from a bigfoot.
Her sasquatch keepsake comes from her parents. Klopp said her parents were driving along in the 1960s, towing a small trailer, when they swerved off the road to avoid hitting what they believed was a man.
The next day, her parents discovered pieces of skin and hair snagged on the trailer.
Whoa, shades of Harry and the Hendersons, there. But no body. The hair was supposedly tested but it was too degraded to show anything of value. Ms. Klopp made a comment at the end of this piece that caught my notice:
She decided to share her story after hearing reports that someone in Texas had killed a bigfoot.
“There are reports that someone has one and has shot it and is storing it in his freezer,” Klopp said. “I would like to know for sure.”
So what about this Bigfoot in a freezer?
