WHISTLER, British Columbia, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- A visitor to British Columbia's Blackcomb Mountain captured video of a wild marmot letting loose with a bizarre "scream."

The "screaming" marmot, featured in a video uploaded to YouTube by Lone Goat Soap Co., starts the video by silently staring at the humans shooting the footage before projecting its high-pitched screech into the mountain air.
