Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 43 Aleksander Petakov

December 9, 2019

This week, we're delighted to welcome back filmmaker Aleksander Petakov to discuss his new documentary "Lions of the East" which focuses on the numerous witness sightings, animal mutilations and tracks of Mountain Lions.

Trouble is, the Mountain Lion has been deemed "extinct" in the New England area since the beginning of the 20th century, yet despite this, people keep seeing them across the state and further afield.

We discuss the cases, the history, the witnesses, the evidence and the compelling feeling that someone, somewhere is not being truthful. We also cover a bit of Ufology with Aleks sighting over the summer, his upcoming appearance in the new Small Town Monsters docu-series "In Search Of Ufos" and a little bit of cryptozoology too.

Aleks' blog can be found here:
