These fox sounds are probably responsible for more country children’s nightmares than anything else.

If you grew up in a rural area, you probably experienced some summer nights of terror with the windows open. Just as you drifted off to sleep, a piercing shriek from your worst nightmares resounded through the night.

Was it a chupacabra? A dying bigfoot? Or could they just be fox sounds?

Was that the noise that caused your lifelong therapy sessions? I would care to bet so.

Red and gray foxes are some of the most common small predators from the Midwest through the Northeast. The ‘vixen’s scream’ is by far one of the most frightening fox sounds there is.

If they only knew it was a fuzzy little woodland creature, they wouldn’t have so many sleepless nights.
