My vote is for the 'cougar'. Having spent a fair amount of time in the woods, this is about the only sound that I have heard that sounds like a womans scream. I know that people say that cougars are not in our part of the world but they do travel and are seldom seen. I have heard bears, wolve, coyotes fox, owls and several other sounds at night and the cougar will make your hair stand on end!

But I listened to sounds (again on line) and it just doesn't match.
I guess the closest thing so far is a fox,,, but why we haven't heard or seen them before now is beyond me.
Got 14 acres and never seen a fox, but they are here. I see the fox holes all over.. even steal the kittens when the strays have litters. Had a mother bring all of her's onto the deck for that reason once.. foxes dont come close to the house and never on the deck. Raccoons though, different sory..

Maybe yours was a raccoon fight?

I have heard a bobcat scream like that.

I have seen things show up in towns and cities that most people think should not be there cause well "those are wild animals and this is a city". I see most people forget that animals can adapt to any situation and live almost anywhere. You may not see them but I bet they are there. As to whether it's not normally there or not well we had a Lynx show up on our old property and they had not been seen in MI in alot of years but DNR was called and they verified yes it was a Lynx.

On the idea of what it could be is that it could be a pig.

Oh by the way raccoons fighting sounds more like cats. One being shot while trying to get in a chicken coop and dying does not sound like a female.

My brother lives in the NW corner of Arkansas and they hear the screams at night also. He is being told it is a panther or cougar.

Wild animals live where they chose to live and we facilitate their choices. We build beautiful trails through the wilderness for our hikers and the wild animals quickly adopt them as their own. In the attached story the bear that was shot had been seen dozens of times on the trail across the street from where it was found injured.
Conservation officers kill injured black bear that was denning under city sundeck

Just because they say they should not be in your area doesn't mean that they aren't. Bears don't live anywhere near our home. I have a picture of one on the road behind our house.

Agree, at our old house at the intersection of two 4 lanes, they said we didn't have anything there either...

one night walking our 135 lb white lab, he went into a vacant lot to smell and he almost tore my arm off pulling the leash ...

I looked up and saw this 4 legged black form @ the back of the lot glance at us and leap straight up over the 6 foot wood privacy fence bordering the subdivision by the woods...
6 foot's a pretty good leap flat footed, especially when the fence was on top of a 2 to 3 foot berm - all I know is that something that can jump 10' straight up ran from us - thank goodness for the street lites

sent chills down me --- talked to my neighbors and they said it was probably a black panther...

moral of the story - fences don't help !

peacock

When I was a kid, a long long time ago, I worked in a gas station near a big cemetery. They had peacocks roaming around in there and they do indeed sound like a woman screaming. Like a woman being murdered.

We've stayed at Casa De Fruta a couple of times, same thing there. Not my favorite place to stay. Poorly maintained & run, very narrow sites, and the last time we were there the back came off the electrical pedestal exposing the LIVE buss bars inside. They never even came to look at it in the 4 days we were there. Peacocks were the least of the problems there.

If you like to get drunk and raise hell all night apparently it's the place to go.

And Dogpatch, DW doesn't scream, she just gets a big stick....
Here's a rabbit screaming, just in case you missed this particular one: Screaming Rabbit - YouTube

And now, at the risk of totally creeping everyone out, especially you : Are you SURE that what you heard was not a human being?

Try talking to your local DNR or University Extension office. Maybe they can give you some insight into what it could have been.
