Check out this video captured by Swan Valley Connections showing a Lynx making odd sounds.
We’ve all had those moments in the wild when we think we hear things. My brother once told me a mountain lion screamed at him late one evening in Oklahoma while he was skinning his muzzleloader buck. I made fun of him for that for a long time. Like a lot.
Here’s the video:
But after hearing the Lynx in the video, I thought back on all the times I dismissed an odd sound for the wind or my imagination.
Maybe it was a predator sizing me up. Maybe it was a cat calling to his friends, “Hey, come look at what I found.”
Maybe I should call my brother and apologize. I think I’ll just send him this video instead.
