This week the boys are galloping across the sandy vistas of Arizona to uncover the truth behind the legendary Red Ghost of the Wild West. It’s a tale of a mysterious beast that left even the grittiest cowboys shivering in their boots – and yes, it involves a camel.
We’ll be answering the burning questions – Why was a camel roaming the Arizona desert? Why the heck did this thing shed so bad? And of course, there is a skeleton on it, so was Conspiracy Bot involved???
So tune in get your spit cups ready… for you or the camels, we don’t judge… because it’s Ghostly Apparitions, Rogue Camels, and the Wild West this week, only on Hysteria 51!
