Hyena making some weird sounds in the Berkeley Hills... I have been hearing this whooping sound in the hills, and even below at my place in town when it is quiet.. Always thought it was the deer but i could find no evidence deer made any sound like this. Finally recently looked up Hyenas, and found other videos with them making this sound... The Hyenas are part of a colony that has been studied at UC Berkeley for many years although i think the program is shutting down and most of the remaining hyenas have already been placed in zoos etc. (i could be wrong, they have been seeking funding as well and may be continuing the program for all i know, the articles i could find are somewhat outdated) They were being studied for their unique communication skills and apparently this was several generations of the same colony..Still photo at beginning and end taken 1-2-12 from Grizzly Peak Blvd, sound/video shot 3-3-12 from the fire road below the fenced off UC area.
