    Need Raccoon "Chatter" Sound


    I am in need of a raccoon sound for my MyABCs project. I had one a while back that I liked very much that supposedly was in the public domain, but I could not verify the source so I removed it. It appears to me that raccoons are not very vocal. Perhaps they are more vocal as juveniles. I do have raccoons here where I live, but it is rare to hear them make any sort of sound. It wasn't until just a couple weeks ago that I heard some chattering outside my door. I went outside & saw a momma raccoon with I think two babies. It was the first time I had heard a raccoon make that noise, outside of film & videos. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get anything to record them before they disappeared.

    If anyone could produce a sound bite of a raccoon chattering under a CC BY, CC BY-SA, or CC0 license, I would much appreciate it.

    Sorry, but I have to question the accuracy of your statement. After doing a Google search with "site:wikimedia.org", all I could come up with was these two pages:

    Procyon lotor (scientific name for raccoons)
    https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Procyon_lotor

    Under the "Audio/Video" category, all it has is two files: (1) a sound file with a man pronouncing the word "racoon" and (2) a video of a racoon, in which the animal does not make a sound.

    Category: Procyon
    rocyon" rel="nofollow">https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category: Procyon

    Under the 'Media in category "Procyon"' category are 8 files, all of which are images.

    So, please: If you know where to find audio recordings of a raccoon making a "chattering" or similar sound, please share the links. I could use something like this, myself, for a project I'm working on.

    Sorry, my bad sad

    What about YouTube?
    Maybe some users will allow you to use their video sounds?

    Or you have to buy a licensed sound on Sounddogs or similar sites

    I've sent a couple requests on YouTube videos, but I haven't received a response yet.

    I found the sound effect that I had previously used on a couple different websites. However, I didn't find any licensing information. I have emailed the site owners & am awaiting a response.

    Here are the sources:
    - degus.com: http://www.degus.com/sounds/Distress.wav
    - terrierman.com: http://www.terrierman.com/Sounds/raccoon2.wav

    The sites appear to be somewhat older, so I don't know if it's likely I will get a reply.
