Description of event: Woody Woodworth was 1/4 mile off Wildcat Mt. Road, 7-8 miles from the junction with Kitzmiller Road (T3S R5E, OR), on September 2nd, early in the morning. He was checking the movement of an elk herd that returned to the area every seven days to feed. From the next canyon over he heard a high pitched whistle, quite loud, that lasted for 20 seconds or so. Very familiar with wildlife sounds, he thought this whistle was peculiar, and not an elk or cat. The whistle set dogs from nearby homes to barking crazily for about five minutes.
