OK–here is a puzzle for all you outdoorsmen (and women, ‘scuse me) who have seen and heard just about every type of critter in the US. My security camera recorded these LOUD howls at 4:45 am the other day. I was unable to see what animal was making them.
To give you some reference I live in a rural area in Northern California, so I know it was not a polar bear, or a wombat. I have lived here for almost 15 years and have never heard this before so I am stumped. So far two people have suggested a female deer giving birth, and one thought it might be a coyote. I just don’t know.
Any guesses? If you like, feel free to share the YouTube link with your friends on social apps.
