Interesting thread. Yesterday around 4:30 PM I was walking the dog and stopped to talk to a friend who drove by. As we were talking we heard a howl that stopped both of us - and the dog. It was a coyote up in the woods maybe 1/2 mile from us - could have been even just 1/4 mile away. Turns out several neighbors have seen him wandering around. He is living in a pile of stumps up in a clearing.
Our house is very tight. A snowmobile could drive by the house and we would not hear it. Plus, I am hard of hearing. Last night as I was working in my home office I could hear the howls.
Without hearing the sounds my 1st guess would be Fisher. I couldn't find a sound bite MP3, but there is some stuff on youtube. Their scream is likened to a dying woman or child. If you hear it you will never forget it, I'll tell you that much.
They'll kill things as big as porcupines and ground nesting birds like turkeys.
Went on youtube, it was definitely a coyote I heard.

You could learn a lot from that werewolf.
