TIME: 11:00 P.M.
Lake Skootamatta, Ontario,
On the southwestern shores of Lake Skootamatta.Crown Land near Bon Echo Provincial Park.
Old Algonqiuan land. Near Highway 41. Half hour drive west of Cloyne on an old logging/fishing
road towards Lingham Lake.
OBSERVED: What myself and my friends heard on this night can be described a few ways...After the first couple seconds of the "sound", I thought it was just an animal mating call (similiar to a loon or owl call, but more complex). As it continued on for about 15 seconds or so, we all stopped what we were doing and realized it wasn't an animal call at all. It sounded "structured", almost musical in nature. I suggested that it was definetly of "human" or hominid origin. It resembled someone/thing re-creating a hunting call or mating call. Others in the group had similiar thoughts ( a Native Canadian, an Owl, Hunters, Pranksters, Windigo). Without having an audio file of it, I can only described it as an "OOOO, Ooo,OOOO,OOO, AHHHH, AHHH" sound, but with many high/low variances and human-like tones about it.
we heard the sound, my friend and I grabbed our flashlights and headed
toward the direction in which the sound came from. My friend rushed ahead
and said he could hear something big back there, breaking branches.
OF WITNESSES: We were playing cards.
People were talking loudly, laughing. Some people
and children were asleep in their tents. Some acoustic guitar being played.
OF CREATURE: Nothing seen, only the intial
call/sound and the sound of branches being broken.
NOTES: I had found native pictographs
on some rocks on this site 5 years prior. Lake Skootamatta is part
of the old Algonqian territory. Approximately two hours after the
initial call which was very close, I heard
a similiar sounding second call. This time is was much further away and eminated from a direction 45 degrees from the original calls location. Two separate calls this time, each much shorter than the intial one.
SIGHTINGS IN THIS AREA: We have been to
this spot for about the last 7 years and never heard
anything like it before. Next time there we will speak to some of the locals about it and see if there were any other reports.
