The picture above is from our patio / deck of our new home. It is situated between two lakes and is an area of Central Illinois where I have concentrated my research for the last 4 years.

At my new home “House between the Two Lakes” I am running my audio recorder 24/7.

On the evening of the 8th of April 2009 at 2 a.m. I recorded 5 minutes of a series of screams. After each scream the dogs in the area would add their barks. I have shortened the recording to make it only a minute long. I have eliminated most of the dog barks but the original recording has not been filtered or altered.

I am sorry that the sound file is of poor quality but the screams were coming from about a mile away so did not record well. I am not sure what animal was doing the screaming, there are coyote, fox, bobcat and cougar in the area. There was a daytime sighting of a sasquatch within about one mile and I have heard the Ohio Moan Howl (not recorded) here 3 weeks ago.
