It's the combination of a scream and a laugh. Such as you might hear a female in the neighborhood that sounds like she's screaming as if she's being attacked and you're about to call the police, but then as you listen further, she is also laughing so apparently she is just playing around with someone.
As I was laying in bed with the window open, I heard someone scraugh, but apparently it was just a hyena. Did I mention I live in the outback?
