WHAT WAS THAT??

11 posts in this topic

my dogs just lit up outside, to the point where I thought someone was in the driveway.

there was no one out there, so I let them in.

lady was all wound up, with her fur all in a hackle, so I stood outside and listened for a few minutes, then I heard, what ever it was.

a loud, I mean as loud as a deer blowing at twenty yards.

it sounded almost like a bark with a sore throat, but more like a deer blowing...only the sound was a bit shorter and more cut of at the end than a deer blowing.

this went on in series of five to six times at less than two second intervals.

there was about a minute in between bursts.

it was across the road, but seemed to be right behind my mailbox.

after about a dozen rounds, I could tell it was moving off, but then it came back.

I tried to immitate the call back and that threw the thing off a bit, only giving one or two calls per session while I did that, but then it went back to the five or six calls per session.

I think I have ruled out deer. I am leaning to a fox, searching for a seperated pup?

Crazy. Depends on how far it was away, but do you have a powerful spotlight? You got me interested in what it really was.

Fox. The red fox warning bark is kind of a coughing bark as well. You can google it and find sound clips. We have a couple that commonly bark in our yard up in Itasca county. Sound kinda creepy.
