Residents of Crownpoint Chapter are used to hearing dogs, coyotes and even the occasional bear. But since July, a distant, unearthly moan in the middle of the night has the hairs on the back of their necks standing on end.

"You can't even really describe it," said Natalie Murphy, who was visiting her hometown from Denver when she heard the sound shortly after midnight the night after Labor Day.

"It starts out as a very low, raspy growl and ends up like a big man yelling," Murphy said. "It sounds like something in pain. There's something human about it, but not quite."

Shortly after it starts, the sound is obscured by "every dog in Crownpoint barking," according to Murphy.

Murphy said several of her acquaintances and relatives have been hearing the sound since July, always between midnight and 2 a.m.

She was quick to add she's not a person who's into psychic phenomena.

"I heard all the scary stories, skinwalkers and things, since I was a kid," she said. "This is the first time I've personally experienced anything."

There's been a lot of these anomalous sounds being reported throughout the world lately. To read the rest of the article, click here.
