This might be one of the creepiest animal sounds I've ever heard. I'll be honest, if I were camping in the woods, around a quiet campfire, this would really freak me out. I would convince myself that it was a Bigfoot. No joke. It's just a really long shriek that you would hear on a spooky sounds soundtrack that you play for trick or treaters as they make their way up to your door.

Check out the video this TikToker got of an elk chasing down some female elk. Try to ignore what he's actually doing and listen to the sound of its ghostly shrieking.

I mean, ok, I get that it's rut season in Wyoming for our elk, but this guy should get some voiceover work in the off-season. Like I mentioned earlier, it totally sounds like what I'd expect a Bigfoot to sound like since they're said to shriek like that.

The cool part is these elk really don't care that there is a car near them, watching. That elk only has one thing on it's mind as it races after a pack of presumably female elks. But just seeing the elk rear back and make that noise had to have been a really cool experience.

It's also a good reminder that it is rut season for the elk and you'll probably want to continue to keep a safe distance from them. Even more so now than normal, aside from it being a wild animal. They're on the look for love and I don't think it'll let anyone stand it their way.

From Bison to Triceratops - All of Wyoming's Official Things

Every state in our nation has chosen things that represent the state in one way or another to be official state things. Like a flower, or animal. Wyoming is no different.

The Equality State, or the Cowboy State, depending on which state slogan you want to go with, has a state flower. But did you know we also have a state tree and a state fish? Yes, we even have a state code.

To be an official thing, a member of the state legislature must write and submit a bill to the legislature declaring that a thing will be the official state thing. Then the legislature votes to pass the bill, or not, if it passes, the governor signs the bill into law and we have a new official state thing.

Here is what we have so far, all of Wyoming's official things. Now you can win big on Wyo Trivia Night if that's a thing that exists.
