Woman Screaming, Pt. 2

Woman Screaming, Pt. 2

I received the following comment from Bobby concerning my last post Woman Screaming. Since my reply was a little bit long I thought I would make a second blog post.

Stan,
With all due respect and in your case my respect for you is immense. I respectfully gotta call you out on this one. Your saying that it’s 50/50 because theres no film/vid of a cougar making this sound?

————————————————————————————————————————————

Bobby,
Thanks for the comment.

I have never said that any sound that I have recorded or anyone else has recorded is a sasquatch. To my knowledge there are no videos publicly available showing a sasquatch making a vocalization and accepted by science as doing so.

Now with respect to cougars sounding like a “woman screaming.”

Let’s look at my Guidelines for Sound Identification.

Guidelines for Sound Identificaiton – # 1

I am unaware of a sound file of sufficient quality of a cougar sounding like a “woman screaming” to use for analysis. I may be wrong and hopefully someone has a sound file that they would share or a url  of an existing sound file on the internet that fits this description. Perhaps a university somewhere has one in their collection and we just don’t have access to it.

Guidelines for Sound Identificaiton – # 2

I have spoken with several people who say “Well, I have seen cougar tracks in these woods, or I have seen cougar in this area, therefore that sound must be from a cougar.”

Guidelines for Sound Identificaiton – # 3

And lastly we just don’t have a sound clip fitting the description of a “woman screaming”.

I have seen two tawny cougar and two black panthers here in Central Illinois since 2004. I have been recording continuously since the spring of 2006. No one would be more thrilled than myself to record a cougar in the wild.

Here are a few sites with cougar vocalizations:

Jungle Walk – Cougar

Partners In Rhyme -Big Cats

Paws On Line – Feline Sounds

Pictures of Cats – Cougar

Soundboard – Cougar

So please, if anyone knows of any additional websites with cougar vocalizations or of a video showing a cougar sounding like a “woman screaming” please let me know.

    At times it amazes me of how people included myself will take what is told to them as gospel. Here is southwestern Missouri people give a lot of credit to bears doing some of the mysterious things that happen. Like opening and closing doors on feed sheds.ect to get to feed barrels and never tipping them over when they eat from them.

    Sometimes we find a lot of ways of justifying the impossible to keep our minds and beliefs from being challenged. It is a whole lot easier than looking into the unknown.

    Ok. I call B.S. THAT IS NOT A PANTHER. Nor is it any of the "Cats" that I have lived around. I lived in (and visited) Arkansas. I have stories I could tell you of a wampus kitty (black panthers) That is NOT the sound of one. Lived in South Carolina….Actually saw a cougar jump on a road two bounds and it was gone. Same area where I lived there was a bobcat. There were foot prints left in the mud. You could hear it yell late at night sometimes. The sound I just heard on the audio was NOT any of those. The audio was more of a whoop right before the yell. No I dont have audio or video. But its like my father said, once you hear it, you dont forget it……. NOT that I have heard one in person, but I am going with squatch.
