Mountain Monsters: Snallygaster of Preston County
Premieres Friday, June 20 at 10/9c
Saturday, June 21 at 1/12c
The AIMS team travel to Preston County, West Virginia, to investigate a huge flying predator called “The Snallygaster.” The team encounters great danger when they invade the creature’s territory and attempt to capture it inside of a large wooden box trap.
This Friday’s all-new episode travels to Preston County, located at the junction of West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Since the days of the eighteenth-century German immigrants, locals have reported the presence of a huge, Pterodactyl-like creature patrolling the skies. Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings (AIMS) arrive in “Snallygaster Circle,” and quickly find they may have bitten off more than they can chew. The AIMS crew learns the Snallygaster is an 800-pound expert aerial predator who is as equally dangerous on land as it is in the sky. After relying on a huge dose of Appalachian ingenuity to complete their most complex and difficult trap build yet, the team faces off against this ferocious flyer in a showdown they will not soon forget.
