Yup, you did right .Mine has too Fanny Mare.
I've lived up here in the woods for a long time. Every time I take the dogs out at night I hear all kinds of noises, rustling in the bushes, animal footsteps etc. and the noises never bother me.
About 3 years ago I opened the door to let my dog out and as soon as I stepped out onto my porch, I just had a weird feeling. I couldn't hear anything but something just didn't feel right. It was that "hair on the back of your neck standing up" type of feeling.
I called the dog back inside and literally ran back into the house and locked the door.
Less than ten minutes later, my entire hill was lit up with lights, a helicopter was circling over my house and my hill was swarming with cops.
Turns out there was a drive by shooting in town and the shooter was hiding in a tree on my property.
ALWAYS listen to your instincts.
