MonsterQuest : Mutant Canines
Airs on Wednesday July 29 08:00 PM and Airs on Thursday July 30 12:00 AM
Something strange is killing Fido. In 2006, a number of pets were killed in Maine and Minnesota by a beast locals describe as a mutant–one of these creatures was hit by a car. The body of this strange looking creature will be DNA tested to see what it really is. Two expeditions will be launched to trap other dog killers still at large. One-part history, one-part science and one part monster, discover the truth behind legendary monsters.
All of these episodes are on History and the times given are Eastern. Please check your local listings.
