Trying to Identify...

Post Number:#1  Unread postby ButtonsPalace » Sat Oct 01, 2016 11:35 pm


So there is some animal hanging out around my rabbits. Must not be anything with any ill will towards my rabbits or it would've attacked by now. We let the dogs out tonight and they started barking at it. We heard the sound it made and it reminded me of something between a Pew sound and a Phew. I don't know how to really describe it, it was pitch dark and we didn't see it but heard it more than once as it ran over into our neighbor's yard *It's fenced or we would've followed* It must not be big since it's able to climb, but it also appears not to be anything that flies. I'll keep an eye out for it as well as see about getting a live trap (or a few) and setting them up, mostly cause I wanna know what's over there. Any ideas of what it could be? I live in Burnsville, NC in the mountains. I'm right off the highway but behind the house and the neighbor's fenced field there are woods but they don't go far before hitting the South Toe River. I myself looked up animals native to here and listened to their sounds with my boyfriend.

I love my automatic wildlife camera, is really worth the 90€, it makes trapping much easier and it is reassuring to know that nothing visits in the night.

My first thought was hedgehog, but they don't climb.
A good day ain't got no rain, a bad day is when I lie in bed and think of things that might have been...

I did youtube it. According to the sounds we have no clue haha. So.. We've been letting our dogs into the area where the animal has been. It made a really weird sound. If we hear it again tonight I'll take an audio recording of it and put it on youtube, that way you guys can hear it. I thought it was a raccoon but it's not making the same sound... I even looked up Mink, Weasel, etc. I doubt it's a bird since it didn't fly.

Got a youtube video of the sound although it was too dark to see it even when I searched with a flashlight before and after the noise was being made. https://youtu.be/qDIWqna8V-0
