There are roughly 30,000 mountain lions that call the United States home. They are masters of disguise and are often not seen by humans. They may not be easily seen, but they are often times easily heard.
A mountain lion‘s scream sounds like a horror movie sound effect. Their vocals can sound like a baby crying or a vicious beast, both are sounds you never want to hear while deep in the woods.
In the video below, a pair of hunters captured the haunting screams of a mountain lion that was a little too close for comfort. Although the mountain lion never appeared visually, it was certainly making its presence known.
Imagine hearing this sound in the middle of the night while camping? Yikes!
