‘We walked down a trail to see if we can find a bird, and on our way back to the vehicle, it started,” Meekis said in an interview. “When it let out the first scream, I thought it was a moose, but my mind changed when it screamed again and again.”
Meekis explained that his family retreated to their vehicle when the tone and rhythm of the howling increased.
In Alert Bay, British Columbia sounds that are similar were recorded in 2015. According to CTV News (video below). Local residents suggested that the noises came from a sasquatch. The island where the howls were heard doesn’t house any large mammals.
