    Default Help with animal noise ID

    Can anyone help me ID the noise, we think it must be linked to the fox recorded by the camera 3 minutes before. Is it foxes fighting or one making a kill?

    Many Thanks for that.
    I was noticing that the sound is not as loud on a friends computer as it is on my own, so apologies if you can not hear it.

    Day time or night time? Did n't sound like fox cubs to us they tend to be more yappy like puppies.

    Yes I think it would bea early so I presumed when cubs were said then it meant last years cubs. Lizz there is some puppy type sounds about 4 secs and 23 secs but they are very quiet and cant be heard on some PCs and as you say the rest of it isnt very puppy like. So I am still none the wiser yet. Have left the camera in the same location to see if we get any more footage that will shed any light on it.

    that is a Vixen fighting probably the unwanted attentions of a dog fox. theirs screams at times can almost be scarey and have been likened to a babies crys
    sometimes the devil needs an advocate
