Some people have claimed to have heard what sounded like a “woman yelling in the woods.” In the most recent episode of Black Outside, we delve deeply into this subject.
We discuss and enjoy some of these sounds in the first season of the TF&G-sponsored audio Dark Outdoors.

Predators have returned, and those who are n’t used to hearing them are startled by their eerie vocalizations. The rise in mountain lion observations and their distinctive names have sparked interest among nature lovers.
- Restored Wildlife: Over the years, efforts have been made to reintroduce recently extinct species in an effort to restore ecosystems ‘ healthy balance. Unusual sounds in the night have resulted from the relocation of wolves, coyotes, and other animals to their original habitats.
