Black Helicopter over house.

I am reporting a strange incident that wasn't a ufo exactly. Here is the story.

Around 10 pm my son and I see a strange four legged creature cross the road we were on. It looked to have a round head (no ears sticking up and no distinctive jaw) and it had a gait like a racoon. It was the size of a very large dog around 90 pounds.

On Aug 14 2010 (about two weeks later) a black helicopter is looking for something just feet above our house. It stays there and nearby for about 20 minutes. About 2 hours later it came back and did the same thing.

That Saturday night we heard a pitiful cry sounding like fear and despair. Like when an animal gets caught. It sounded like it was only blocks away to the west of us and will haunt me for a long time.

Sunday morning about 11 am we heard two military B 52s leaving O'Hare. We first heard them (military aircraft are real loud) and went outside to see. It was clear what they were.

So, anybody else see,hear or notice something that day? I can't find anything locally about it.
