German term or phrase: Waldzug
Vom Kuechenfenster aus hate man einen wunderbaren Ausblick auf den Wallberg, ein Walzug, der nur 300 Meter hinter Feldern in der Naehe unseres Hauses lag. Eines Sommertages hoerten wir ein ungewoehnlich jaemmerliches Jaulen. Durch das Fernglas konnten wir nach einiger Zeit im Wallberg nahe einer Lichtung eine bedauerliches Kreatur, die sich irgendwie in einem alten Zaun verfangen haben musste, beobachten.

... at first I thought it was "forest train," but later in this section, the dog is described as being "im Wallberg." Since Wallberg= Waldzug, I'm inclined to think it's not a train...
