.....I used to live in city...and early hours foxes used to hunt around for food..rubbish left out..
Was a disturbing sound...I spose its not a lot different from cats meowwing..dogs barking..just communication...to other foxes..thats my interpretation anyways

If its a sound your not used to it can be un-nerving and many people think its a woman screaming ....
