One teenager, a yearling, is killed, two injured, and three lost. The lost three brothers have wandered into the next-door territory, and discover their neighbours. What they find turns their family upside down, and when the two prides come together, the lion family is fractured by betrayal and rage.

    Himalayan Terror, Season 3 | Episode 9

    Aquatic ecologist Dr Zeb Hogan is on a mission in the Indian Himalayas to investigate disturbing reports of a mammoth sized catfish called a Goonch - accused of stalking, attacking and killing people. (This is OK- I've seen this elsewhere, but any Discovery site is not good.) Zeb enlists the help of local guide and conservationist Vinay Badola, and together they head out to investigate the crime scenes along the Kali River. They'll raft through treacherous white water in an area known by locals as 'the Lost Country', where they meet with eye witnesses who give them detailed accounts of the attacks. Zeb then travels to the Ramganga River, the perfect place to spot and catch some Goonch. Commercial fishing is not allowed here so this river could be harbouring some giant fish. (Also- needs a source) His goal is to catch the Goonch and study its behaviour to determine whether these stories are fact or fiction.
