should I worry about this?
Hi - I think this is the best place to post this.
Last week DURING THE DAY (middle of the day/sunny/hot) my sister in laws came over and we heard this really weird loud screaming that started out sounding like a child being beaten or something and near the end sounded more like a puppy yelping/screaming in pain. We ventured a little ways into the woods behind my house and glimpsed a raccoon like/fox like animal but we don't know if that was the animal making the sound.
I heard the screaming like this the next day also and then yesterday afternoon (a week after the first sounds).
Then last night (well early this morning actually) - it was 12:30 am or so - my daughter and I woke up to VERY loud screaming, very scary sounding and it sounded like it was right in our living room because we had all the windows opened.
Should I be worried that it has happened during the day and now during the night?
I've been searching online all morning trying to figure out who here in Maine I could contact for info on this.
The warden? Animal Control?
Anyone else had an experience like this? Do you think it is a fisher or raccoon?
Thanks for your help!
