This video purports to show the body of a dead alien that reportedly crash landed near the town of Irkutsk in Russian Siberia near Lake Baikal in recent weeks.

Some observers have branded it as a wild hoax.

The alien is lying on the snow on the edge of a forest; he is a small creature and it appears one of its limbs have been severed in the crash.

Reportedly, the video has also elicited conspiracy theories in Russia – some speculated that the Russian military failed to clean up the area properly after an alien ship crashed (i.e., overlooking the small corpse).

Also, villagers in the region reportedly saw strange orange lights in the sky, which one resident allegedly filmed on a mobile phone.
