  1. Hi I live in northeast pa. Yesterday morning at about 5am while going to my car to go to work I heard a strange sound in hte woods behind my house. I enjoy the out doors and know just about every animal sound in pa. But this was different. As I went to open the door to my car I heard a loud whooping sound in the woods about 50 yrds deep with a type of screech inbetween the whoops. At first I thought may a bar owl or screetch owl. but this was to load and belowed. The screetch not an owl either. what ever it was loud and close. I don't scare easy but this had the hair on the back of my neck stand up. This went on for about 5 minutes then stopped. So I went to work. I knew I had heard that noise before. while driving to work I realized the only other time I have heard that is when watching a documenatary on bigfoot. When I arrived home I told the story to my son and he pulled up some audio on youtube that sounds exact to what I heard. My son and I then went out back to the woods to see if we could find any tracks in the snow Sad to say nothing. But I know what i heard. any thought from anyone on this would love to hear them. you can get me at I'm really interested to hear what you might think. Thanks
