just before Running Y Resort, on the south side of Hwy. 140
NEAREST TOWN: Klamath Falls
NEAREST ROAD: hwy 140 West
OBSERVED: I stepped outside to empty the trash when I heard at first what sounded like a siren. It could best be described as sounding similar to the whoops posted on this site. There were 4 or 5 loud whoops that had more emphasis towards the end of the sound. Immediately following the first sound and continuing throughout the sounds I could here a pack of coyotes going absolutely nuts. There are a lot of coyotes that frequent the area so I know their sounds really well. Sometimes they get worked up but never anything like this. After the sounds ended everything went quiet, even the coyotes stopped howling.
ALSO NOTICED: Just the coyotes
OTHER WITNESSES: none
TIME AND CONDITIONS: about 11:00 pm
overcast at night
Snow on ground.
ENVIRONMENT: Juniper forest, hilly terrain.
