Marmot screaming on Blackcomb Mountain

Listen to an adorable marmot scream on Blackcomb Mountain in British Columbia.

That sound isn't so adorable, is it? We're wondering if glass stemware could stand a chance against this critter's ear-piercing squeal. The video was posted earlier this summer by the Lone Goat Soap Company and is still screeching across the Internet.

Some outlets suggested the marmot is might be warning of intruders.

Marmots vocalize when startled or feeling threatened, according to "Marmots: Sociology Behavior and Ecology."
