Foxes are known for their unique vocalizations, which include screams and barks. These sounds are commonly heard during the mating season or when foxes communicate with each other. Fox screams are often mistaken for the cries of a human or a woman in distress, due to their high-pitched and eerie nature. The screams are used by foxes to locate each other or to signal their presence to potential mates. This vocalization can be heard during the hours of the night and is louder in urban areas due to the absence of other noises.

Additionally, foxes also use barking as a form of communication. Unlike the screams, fox barks are shorter and more repetitive. They are usually used as a warning to potential threats or to communicate with other foxes. The barks can vary in pitch and intensity depending on the situation. Fox barks are commonly heard during territorial disputes or when foxes are disturbed or threatened.

It is important to note that fox sounds can be quite unsettling, especially for those who are unfamiliar with them. However, these vocalizations are a natural part of a fox's behavior. If you ever encounter the sound of a fox screaming or barking, it is best to keep a safe distance and avoid any unnecessary interactions. Foxes are generally shy and elusive creatures, and they prefer to avoid human contact.
