Possible vocalizations heard outside Ruch on BLM land called "Woodrat Mountain"

YEAR: 2003


MONTH: September

STATE: Oregon

COUNTY: Jackson County

LOCATION DETAILS: The events were heard in the 800 block of Upper Applegate Rd. It sounded like the sounds were in the BLM land called Woodrat Mountain.


NEAREST ROAD: Upper Applegate Rd

OBSERVED: Vocalizations over a period of months. Long drawn out howls. They were very loud in comparison to other animals that you would hear in the area.

The sounds appeared to be originating from BLM land across the street from my house. Did not see anything, but these were not howls that you would hear from other animals in the area.

This happened throughout the summer and fall of 2003.



OTHER STORIES: Many vocalizations throughout the summer and fall of that year.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: Evening and night time
