I live at Harpers Ferry Wv but on the Md side. We are in the mountains with the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers at the foot. Mostly during March - May, I wake up at night to hear something screaming, it does not sound like a woman screaming or a baby crying but a weird echoing scream, going thru the upper part of the mountain. It has walked down the road crying and even came into our front yard to chase our cat. The cat had a bell on his collar and you could hear him running for the house. I let the poor thing in, he was plastered up against the garage door, while dh let our rottweiler out. She chased the thing back up to the road, she is trained not to leave our property. The thing ran across the road and screamed again. We found footprints in the garden the next day and they looked like a cats prints but bigger. I didn't hear it scream at all this spring. But the day before one of the hurricanes hit us in September, I heard it crying at 4:00 in the afternoon. Then my son saw a bobcat on the road 3 days later running up the mountain. Does this sound like it could be a bobcat or coyote or something else. We have had coyotes in our yard in broad daylight. Also some have been run over on the road here too. We took pictures of them. My neighbor says he had old deer roasts out in his yard defrosting one day and he saw 3 mountain lions come and take the roasts. The game warden took pictures of the prints but won't say what they are . " Just some kind of cat" was the only answer he got. Anyone have any ideas ?
