To those who heard it, the sound was described variously as being a shrill squeal, a flute-like blare, the screeching of car brakes, a steam whistle, a mechanical scream, metal scraping against metal, an off-kilter siren, or a banshee like moan, but it was agreed by all that no matter what exactly it sounded like it was a truly intense and nerve-wracking racket which purportedly kept people awake and was said to drive pets nuts. The weird noise was also described as coming from the trees, from backyards, and even from the middle of the street, and no one could quite figure out where or what it was emanating from.
Forest Grove Police Capt. Mike Herbs said of the noise:
There would be a city ordinance violation if somebody was creating a noise like this, that late at night, on purpose to annoy people. At this point, we dont have information that would lead us to believe thats the case.
The wilder theories included that the sound was made by UFOs or that it was the wailing of some strange creature or entity like a ghost or Sasquatch, or even the portentous trumpeting of angels from Heaven. Indeed, whole forums were dedicated to the unexplained noise, where there were theories ranging that it was produced from vast underground bases and government mind control experiments, to the inscrutable activities of government installations or more paranormal explanations like ghosts and UFOs.
[A]physics professor at Forest Groves Pacific University, an Andy Dawes, has thrown in his two cents by saying:

Screaming and howling liberals who just can’t get over Trump in the White House.
Hillary - walking in the woods again.
Where was Hillary? Was this before or after Nov. 2016????
It’s from Bigfoot’s gay brother.
This is not a one-off occurrence. Several towns in Canada and a few others around the world have also reported this phenomenon.
Or my ex has moved there

There’s even a site for weird phenomena.
Or a Wendigo...
It’s Oregon. A liberal state. It’s the sound of logic being tortured.
My high school biology teacher (Minnesota) said that some sort of cat - a Lynx iirc - can make a sound like some woman is screaming like she is being killed. He said that even knowing what it is - it would make his hair stand up on his neck at night at his cabin in the woods.
I’ll need to review this thread tomorrow.
An enraged Lorax?
It was the sound of the last conservative leaving Oregon. It stopped because they’ve all left.
A bobcat does that, yes. Not sure about lynx or federal park service game wardens posing as lynx either.
