Season 2 Premieres Friday, April 4 at 10/9c on Destination America
Next Friday at 10/9c, decades of folklore and eyewitness encounters collide as the Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings travels to Pike County, Ky., to investigate the Kentucky Hellhound.
First spotted in 1939 in the western heart of Hatfield and McCoy territory, and originally written off as the delusion of backwoods moonshiners, this enormous 500-pound canine predator is in fact alive and well, menacing the local farming community. AIMS must act fast to capture the creature in a huge bamboo cage trap before the cornstalks are harvested and the Hellhound migrates for the winter season.
ABOUT MOUNTAIN MONSTERS
MOUNTAIN MONSTERS follows a team of expert hunters and trappers as they defend Appalachia from mysterious creatures that have spawned countless sightings in the region for generations. Legendary local beasts like the Hellhound, Yahoo, Fire Dragon, and Hogzilla aren’t just old wives tales, and the Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings (AIMS) is in hot pursuit to prove it. As native sons of West Virginia, the men of AIMS have spent their entire lives navigating the backcountry, surviving off the land, and practicing do-it-yourself resourcefulness in a land where time stands still. Putting a lifetime of training to the test, the AIMS team investigates, tracks, and attempts to trap these evasive creatures in an epic battle between man and monster.
