Battle of the Bulls

Battle of the Bulls

There are many sounds that researchers mistake for sasquatch. One of these is a domestic bull bellowing in the distance.  The sounds can be very low and carry for a great distance. It bothers me to sit out on the deck at my home while my neighbor’s bull is carrying on. And that is 1/2 miles away and through the woods. It is not only the bellowing that bothers me but also all the grumblings and other sounds that bulls make to go along with it.

Recently I placed my recorder along the fence row that separates two pastures. The one bull comes up to this fence and paws the ground while he is vocalizing. Although they can see each other, the two bulls are separated by about 200 yards.

These two clips illustrate the bellowing that bulls can make.

The short version of the bull can be listened to here: Bull bellowing clip # 1:

Another short version of the bull can be listened to here: Bull bellowing clip # 2:

 

This final clip is long, 43 minutes, but has so many sounds in it that I thought I would include it for anyone who wants to listen. This sequence has individual sounds from each of the two bulls, but in several places includes both animals bellowing at the same time.

The long version of the bull can be listened to here: Bull bellowing clip # 3:

    Thanks for posting this, Stan! Those of us from the suburbs haven't had the opportunity to listen to something like this.

      Steve, Unless someone lives in the country they don't usually have the opportunity to hear these sounds. These sounds can be very scary and disconcerting when one doesn't know what they really are.

    Cool stuff as always. I use to help at a friends family farm (cattle) and yes they can make some wild sounds. Stan I'm jeep shopping how have you liked yours so far? Any recommendations?

    Thanks in advance and as always keep up the good work and thanks for sharing!

      Bobby,

      I love the Jeep, negatives are low fuel economy and small gas tank. I had wanted one for almost 50 years.

    Stan, believe it or not, just a couple days after hearing these sounds on your site, my wife and I were camping on some BLM land in SE Idaho that is open to grazing. Just before the sun came up, I heard a series of cattle bellows just like the ones here and you're right. I would have been a little fearful wondering what those sounds were if I hadn't heard them here first.

    Lol. Those bulls sure do sound annoying. I would be bothered by that too.
