A short (1.5-3 seconds in duration) loud, Open-Mouthed, highly modulated, and acoustically noisy ‘wooooaaaarrrrr' or ‘barooo' sounding rumble by an infant, calf, or, on occasion, juvenile that carries a protesting, or whining tone. This call tends to be produced when an infant or calf is comforted by a family member after suffering some ‘injustice’ (e.g. have been pushed, kicked, tusked, denied access to the breast) or after experiencing something frightening or distressing. We refer to this call as a Baroo-Rumble.
