    You can go on line to hear night animal sounds. Maybe you can identify the noise that way.

    ok now i feel bad! but it kinda scared me and i dont want to go into the woods at night to see if fox was in trouble bc it could have been foxes fighting or some other animal that i dont want to be alone with at night!

    A fox sounds like its screaming and can be scary, so can a bobcat, they sound like something killing something bobcats sounds more human than foxes but foxes are close, I hope you figure out what it is.

    Bobcats sound like babies squalling, very eery and chilling.

    Fishers (sometimes [incorrectly] called a fisher cat) make a pretty scary sound too.
