A couple of minutes ago, I heard the most bizarre thing outside. It sounded sort of like a child crying, only it was clearly an animal. High pitched, very loud, sounded pretty close to our house (which is in the woods) and I think there was more than one of them. It sounded like either a preditor celebrating a kill, or maybe a prey being hunted. Scared the crap out of our dog- boy, was I glad we keep her in the house at night! Hell, what it was scared the crap out of me! It was really odd. It may well be coyotes, my dad says we have them in the area, but coyotes sound sort of like dogs and wolves don't they? I don't know, does anyone have any idea what it might have been?
