Skamania County, Washington
I've got one for you. This is a true story.
The area is rather remote, with very few people living up there, most are 1/4 mile at the closest to neighbors. I was outside in the yard around dusk playing with my daughter and my gray wolf dog, when the neighbor's dogs, (who lived farther up the canyon, that he used to hunt bear), started to make more noise than usual.
Living in the mountains in such a remote place, it is not unusual to see and hear mountain lions, black bear, puma, elk, and the like, and I am familiar with the sounds of these animals. My dog has chased without fear, or sense I should say, all of the animals above, and he has never cowered, even when he was charged by a bull elk during the rutting season, until that evening.
That was the quietest night that I had ever experienced there, not the usual dogs barking in the distance, but dead quiet, the only noise heard was the occasional crashing and breaking of wood, like something big was about in the woods.
