When I herd the first scream I was so startled I jumped 2ft in the air. I never go in the mountains unarmed I was carrying a 30 round SKS. I could hear this beast was extremely angry and coming straight at me. I thru the safety off of my riffle and fired 10 rounds over the head where the creature was making his noise, which would have been 50 yards to the south of me. It stopped its advance towards me. Then it started to move in the opposite direction uphill, all the while screaming and breaking trees along the way until it crested a large hill.

I already found that one. I also searched for variations in spelling and Piaute, Washoe, Shoshone, and Ute folklore websites.
I first saw it in an out of print book on Native American myths and legends and it had no footnote or source reference.
I thought I already knew most of the local legends and tales, but this is a new one on me.
