Last week you may recall I posted a short video from my security camera, with a loud and disturbing animal scream that woke me up early one morning. I had never heard a sound like this before so I turned to you for your expert opinions as to what it might be.
If you didn’t watch and listen to it last week, here is a link to the original post so you can hear it for yourself.
As of this time, the video has been watched by 796 readers. Wow! Thanks for watching and thanks to the over 40 people who commented.
Here are the results of your comments…
- 6 people said it was Big Foot
- one thought someone was shooting a Tarzan movie (thanks Dan–made me laugh out loud)
- one each for red fox and gray fox
- one thought it was a deer being killed by another animal
- 8 people said it was human in origin for a number of reasons ranging from a woman giving birth to Al Gore bemoaning his loss to Bush
- 5 voted for coyote
- one owl
- 3 for mountain lion (or cougar/puma)
- 2 thought it might be a domestic dog,
- one gray wolf
- 2 bobcats
- one werewolf
- 2 for elk
- one thought bear cub
Eliminating the ones who thought it was human in origin, because the reasons given were too varied and comical, the conclusion is that you must have heard the first known recording of Big Foot!!!!
The jury is still out…
Thanks for playing, though.
