Hearing screams at night

On several times this week I have heard screaming coming from the trees. I was told it was coyotes but did once hear it during the day. The screams sound of many individuals. Sounds of hell but no feelings of evil.

Could it be a hallucination? I use to hear sounds from the rain. It wasn’t real.

Others have not heard it. One was awake during same time I heard the screams.


Coyotes and foxes both sound like children/women screaming in pain. It freaked me out when I first moved to a more forested area. They roam through our yard at night.
