    A few weeks ago I was coming in from feeding the goats and I heard this weird noice. I heard it several times. At first I though it was a dog but I will tell you a dog could not make this noise! It sounded like a cross between a cow mooing and a horn of some sort. It called several times and I know it came from an animal. It sounded up on the hill like 1/2 mile away from us. Dose anyone know what it could be?

    A cow blowing it's horn? :ROFL:

    Sorry, could it have been a cow that was giving birth or sick? They can sound real pitiful and kinda like you described. Otherwise I have no idea.

    male deer and elk make very odd noises. Heard a deer int he woods here one day, kind of like a mooing cow but not. He was calling to the goat does that were in heat, he paced our fence for several hours.

    im going with elk moose or deer. their cries are like a mix between cows and bad brakes


    and i would think MA would possibly have an elk population.. i've seen them in texas


    i dunno about the coyote though. i live right next to a wildlife reserve ( not the goats though) and i hear them every night.. did you know a single coyote can make 7 sounds at once.. but i'venever heard one sound like a cowhorn

    Sometimes peafowl make very off sounds, but usually like the sound of a baby crying.. or like one of wierd cats being strangled.

    Ok, so lets break it down, you could have either heard
    1. A sick cow
    2. A moose
    3. An elk
    4. Male deer
    5. A donkey
    6. coyote
    7. bear
    8. Or, peafowl.

    EDIT:
    Ok, so wheres Bob and his wierd morphed animals?

    I don't think we have Moose in MA, but I could be wrong.

    What kinda of noise pattern did it have? Like was it like a "BLLLLAAAAHHHHHH" or a "MOOOOOEROOOF" or a "EEEEOOOHHHAHAA" or whatever, you get the idea, but that could help us decide :shrug:

    :ROFL:

    :ROFL: Ok I'm not quite sure I've ever heard ANY of those noises before. The funny part is that I actually sat here trying to sound those out just to get an idea of what sound you were trying to make :ROFL:
