Ready for some more old time monster hunting in the Appalachian mountains ?
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.
Hellhounds aside, the team at AIMS (Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings) look like they’re pretty serious. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone going monster hunting on a show like this with rifles in tow, and yet there they are, looking to bag themselves an honest to goodness… something.
The guys in this group, including leader John ‘Trapper’ Tice, are no joke either. The AIMS team has a load of hunting experience and are all trained outdoorsmen. So the bottom line is that, even though they’re hunting crypt ids, this is one serious team of would-be Van Helsings.
The second season of Mountain Monsters kicks off with the hunt of the Hellhound on April 4th at 10/9 central on Discovery’s Destination America channel.
