    I wish I could hear an enhanced version, but it sounds to me like it could very well be a few dogs barking back and forth in a really quiet, echo-ey location. The echoes are sort of distorting the audio, but I think that is what it may be.

    Then again, who knows. I wasn’t there.

  2. DWA responds:

    Well, if you have heard anything like that either in the woods or elsewhere, and have proof what it is, do drop by.

    chadgatlin: that those are dogs would be a very NON-mundane solution. If there were any canid that sounded like that I’d know. And you would too. I don’t bet, but I’d be down for two months of lunch money that no Fido is making those sounds.

  3. Goodfoot responds:

    I agree. Not dogs AT ALL.

  4. dconstrukt responds:

    not dogs.

    sounds like something much bigger.

    but around 1 min 10 seconds -1:20 it almost does sound like a dog or something…

    not sure.

    they could be eating somethign and yelling? who the hell knows.

    interesting…

  5. corrick responds:

    Documented source?
    Laughable.

  6. John Kirk responds:

    Why do we automatically assume this is a sasquatch? Eerie unidentifiable noises in the woods. Is the logic supposed to be that any unknown sound in the forest must be a sasquatch? If it is, it’s flawed.

    Read my thoughts on this here: Why Do We Assume Sasquatch?

  7. Raiderpithicusblaci responds:

    Fascinating. Somewhat reminiscent of the vocalizations I heard in the 70’s, but, indeed, it seems there are at least two of them. This makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Though this is some distance away, it is eerily similar.

  8. EastTexan responds:

    Interesting. I’m starting to sound like a broken record (remember them?) but where is the information about the recording? Done with a cell phone, or what. Conditions? What does “it has improved sounds” mean.

    On YouTube there is a follow-up video to this one with video of the area. I didn’t find a whole lot of background information there, either. I’m not dismissing this out of hand, I just want to know more details.

  9. cryptokellie responds:

    First things first. The title should read “Strange Screams Captured in California” as there is no possible way to prove that these noises are from a Bigfoot. My first guess is that these might be bear roars/bellows. Bears can make one hell of a blood-curdling racket when they want to. I have heard them myself during camping trips when I was a kid. Go to You Tube and listen to some bear roars…quite similar. My second guess would be some other group, off in the distance, call-blasting for Bigfoot as the bellowing is quite regular and at almost syncopated intervals as one might expect from an audio recording being played on a sound system. The length of the recording would also suggest a call blasting event but I’m just guessing. Much more interesting then the slowed-up gobbledygook gibberish that we’ve been hearing in audio evidence lately.

  10. PhotoExpert responds:

    Interesting and kind of scary! It almost sounds like an audio track to some monster movie because it is that strange.

    I am not sure what that is but I would not want to run into it on a dark night.

    I am in agreement with the majority here, I do not believe that sound eminates from dogs or coyotes for that matter. And it is probably not a larger canid such as a wolf.

    I think the poster I agree most with so far is cryptokellie. His thoughts were my exact thoughts and also in the same order or probability. And if it is not a bear or call blast accounting for those sounds, it is very interesting and intriguing!

    Goodfoot–In a prior post, you stated that you had heard words being said from several feet away. My question to you is twofold. First, when you heard words being spoken at a close distance, were you able to identify what or whom was saying those words? Secondly, if you did have a Bigfoot sighting at the same time those spoken words were heard by you, did they sound similar in octave to the sounds on this audio track?

  11. springheeledjack responds:

    If those two would quit moving around and making noise it would be clearer.

    And yeah, doesn’t mean it was a sasquatch–however it does sound similar to other audios of supposed sasquatch howls. Check out BFRO.net and others.

    I do not think it was dogs either. Just sounds different.

    Could be another animal…or even another cryptid. :)

  12. springheeledjack responds:

    Didn’t finish my thought–echoing cryptokellie, it could be call blasting. Especially with all of the attention lately from shows and the number of Bigfoot hunters out there, you have to rule that out too. On any given night there could be call blasting going on by determined hunters.

    However, until we get someone within line of sight to actually see a Bigfoot give out a yowl, we’re not going to get the definitive.

  13. Arctos1978 responds:

    It sounds like a really echoed version of several dogs barking at something, possibly a bear. If you can tune out the moving around and talking (wished they would’ve stfu lol) and turn it up a bit, you can see what i’m talking about. Its definately not the ‘typical’ howling sounds you generally hear from other ‘bigfoot’ television shows. Not sure what it is, but if I had to take a guess, I’d say its a bunch of dogs down in a valley or something where sound can bounce around and produce an echo, and possibly a bear. Listen specifically around the 4:50 mark, pretty sure thats a dog. Honestly, this could’ve been recorded in a city as well, there is no indication that this is in the woods, mountains ect lol. maybe a cave?

  14. Arctos1978 responds:

    13 min mark, what is that a train? u know its a possibility that the sound they’re hearing is the sound of a train’s cars on the rails, through like the entrance to a tunnel of sorts. its pretty consistent.

  15. Dr Kaco responds:

    Without knowing whether there was someone doing call blasting in the area we’ll never know for sure. Pretty neat if you were there I’m sure ;p

  16. William responds:

    I had heard this over a year or more ago. I just think it sounds like a pack of coyotes or wolves howling in a canyon with a tremendous echo. I think some domesticated dogs also join in from afar. If one howl was being made with this type of volume from close range, then I might be thinking a sasquatch, but there is no indication of that as it clearly sounds like multiple canine types howling together.

  17. AreWeThereYeti responds:

    Can someone explain why, if these are legit Sasquatch calls, vocalizations – what have you – how it is that we are not awash in similar Bigfoot audiotapes? I mean, these are obviously extremely loud calls, made from/over some distance and with no attempt at stealth or secrecy. As such, one would think that such profound calls would be more commonly reported/recorded – or even the audio archetype for the creature.

    They are certainly not what one would expect from a shy, retiring and secretive creature… The more commonly reported whistles, screams, hoots, etc., are generally higher pitched and, by their very nature, not audible over such extreme distances; seemingly more in keeping with a reclusive forest ape’s desire to remain hidden.

    It also begs the question: if Bigfoot is capable of such loud/wide ranging sounds, why even bother with tree knocking? Moreover, if this is what Sasquatch sounds like, I guess Moneymaker, BoBo, et al. have been SCREECHING up the wrong tree, so to speak – not to mention everyone considering one of those “SquatchIt” callers, previously hyped all over this site…

    Of course, Sasquatch may be able to make a wide variety of sounds and simply chose “this” occasion to broadcast its/their(?) existence to the world, right?

  18. Ploughboy responds:

    I try to keep in mind, although we’ve lots of people reporting Bigfoot sightings, and some have made reports of howls/shrieks in the context of those sightings, as far as I know, nobody has described actually seeing a Bigfoot howling, or at least not recording it when seeing it. As far as what this recording means in the greater context of Bigfootevidence, I am not sure, and I doubt anyone is. It might mean nothing, or it might be a very significant event. It is one of those episodes you hope to have explained some day.

    The top three categories of evidence for me, in no particular order of rank, continues to be:

    1. P/G film
    2. Tracks
    3. The body of sighting reports

    This is, I think, the primary evidence. Absent any other evidence, it would still be very, very compelling. I consider the “secondary” evidence of sound recordings, tree manipulations, blurry videos/photos, hair samples of unknown origin and controversial DNA studies to be so open to debate as to corrupt the value of the primary evidence. Those things are fun to bat around, but are not serious players, I don’t think.

    I do hold out some hope that Dr. Sykes and his colleagues with the O. L. DNA project will be putting up #4. We’ll see.

I mean, these are obviously extremely loud calls, made from/over some distance and with no attempt at stealth or secrecy. As such, one would think that such profound calls would be more commonly reported/recorded – or even the audio archetype for the creature.

    Well, a call very similar to what I’m hearing here – the “Ohio Howl” – has become an archetype of sorts, with many people who have heard these sounds vouching for it as either similar, or exactly what they heard. Now, of course, no animal was observed making it, nor that I can think of (and as Ploughboy notes as well) has anyone watched an animal emitting a similar sound.

    They are certainly not what one would expect from a shy, retiring and secretive creature… The more commonly reported whistles, screams, hoots, etc., are generally higher pitched and, by their very nature, not audible over such extreme distances; seemingly more in keeping with a reclusive forest ape’s desire to remain hidden.

    I try to keep in mind that the critical factor in sasquatch’s elusiveness is our refusal to believe it’s real. I think many people dismiss many things they hear outside. Some people are either more observant, or get luckier, or know more about the outdoors than others. Don’t know what exactly is going on here; but the eyewitness testimony doesn’t seem to indicate that sasquatch are that much more forest ninjas than the animals we know about.

    It also begs the question: if Bigfoot is capable of such loud/wide ranging sounds, why even bother with tree knocking? Moreover, if this is what Sasquatch sounds like, I guess Moneymaker, BoBo, et al. have been SCREECHING up the wrong tree, so to speak – not to mention everyone considering one of those “SquatchIt” callers, previously hyped all over this site…

    Well, we don’t know why tree-knocking happens (and unlike yelling, people have witnessed sasquatch doing it, more than once). Maybe their lungs get tired; maybe this is how they keep from going hoarse; maybe there is a different significance. Again, we don’t know. More than one form of conveying information is known from many animals.

  20. volmar responds:

    This is a dog, or maybe a wolf howling. No Sasquatch here, I’m sorry.

  21. Becho responds:

    We have a similar recording of repeated screams over a seven minute period. It occurred after we went back to the location of a clan that ran us off after we had been trying to habituate them for almost two years. I assume the patriarch saw us up on a high landing above where we had been doing the habituation. I think he was on a ridge several miles away.

    It screamed over and over, just like this recording, as it came toward us. I joked to one of my research partners that it might be upset at the neon green sweatshirt she was wearing. As soon as she covered it with a jacket the screaming stopped, as if someone flipped a switch. I haven’t posted it because it’s not as good a quality as this one from Ca. But it sounds just like this. We were out in the middle of nowhere, by the way. No homes or domesticated dogs within miles. Besides, a few days earlier they had surrounded us and pushed a tree over while we were there. That time they imitated coyote’s or wolves after they were in a dominant position on high ground. We had made some mistakes and they were done with us. It could be that the logging that took place within a half of mile had something to do with it as well.

  22. Arctos1978 responds:

    Becho,

    A clan of what exactly? If you are talking about a clan of bigfoot and patriarch and all that, and you are certain do you have physical evidence? I’d like to hear a sample of your findings as well as pictures, videos ect that your research team has come up with. I agree with DWA, this is starting to sound more like a mythical forest ninja…

    On another note, Why do those ‘shows’ that deal with these cryptids, how come when they hear the sounds, they don’t act on it and go after the source? Its always at the end of the show, or they choose not too. Why? Because until actual proof is made, physical clear cut visual and physical evidence is shown, there is no clear cut answer as to what this is, or what made that noise.
