I live on a farm, and recently we have had a new friend and im not sure what it is. We have a farm dog (German shepherd mix) and a black lab, and these dogs are getting very stirred up at night and in the morning. When I poke my head out the door there is something making a lot of racket and sort of responds to the dogs. Sounds like a coyote, but there is no change in the pitch, just a high pitched scream. I know there is a coyote that lives in the sunflowers behind the house, but there was also a badger in the yard yesterday morning. So has anyone heard what a badger sounds like? I have never heard a badger make noise before.
Also, I brought my lab in the house this morning after his morning briefing outdoors. and his torso had a wet spot on it and it smelled skunky, but he did not get sprayed because the spot just has a hint of skunk...
