    This is weird because I have heard this exact sound before. The traffic was backed up because of an accident a few kilometers away. All of the cars were stopped waiting for things to get going and we were sitting outside of the van and heard this exact noise coming from the woods.

    Couldn't a lab or someone with the right equipment to a sound analysis on it? They must be able to identify it in some way or another, at least whether it was human or not.

    As a person with a fair amount of animal knowledge, Family business is a private zoo. I would say it is not a coyote, however does sound somewhat like a wolf. Coyote never howl alone you will always hear multiples and that recording is a single animal. The recording just doesn't sound deep enough to be a large primate, as well primate calls are usually shorter not so drawn out .

    second point in that area also watch out for black bears they are more likely to be a problem than are grizzly's.

    Ya I know for sure it isn't a coyote, they tend to sound like more of a yelping noise, than a low howl like in the sound clip. We have lots of coyotes behind our house and hear them every night. I have heard claimed sasquatch howls before on tv, and they all seem to sound very similar.

    Other info is that it is at high elevation where only coyotes, bears, and elk would be found.

    I have heard coyote and elk calls and this is neither.
    Some have suggested a cow or bull, however it isnt quite like a cow not to mention that there are no cattle in that area at all.

    Here is a "sonogram" of the recording, however it does not show nor prove what kind of animal could have done that.

    Could it be Loons? I have mistaken a Loon's call/squawk for wolves before. When I was in Alaska camping at Bare Loon Lake on the Chilkoot, I sat for a long time around suck watching Loons dive and basically wander around on the lakefront. When it got dark, you could here them out on the lake, especially with the lack of camp noises and stuff. Very eerie if you don't realize what they are...

    Maybe there are some .wav files of a loon out there on the internet somewhere...

    I dont know Jay, ive heard loons before and this dont sound like one to me.

    The author seems pretty credible, so if this indeed is an authentic recording of an animal, i have no idea what it could be.

    I know ive never heard anything like it.

    I don't think loons could get that low and sustaing the howl for that long.

    also proximity to a still body of water was not mentioned. You would have to be near a lake or pond to get a call from a loon and only the creek was mentioned for water. By the sound of the creek it is moving too fast to be a good loon habitat. I also agree with Cam S.

    Oops, sorry, didn't know you had a link to an MP3 file... I was just going off the verbal description...

    Too big a file to download, but loons are generally a high pitched sound, not very "bassy" :)

    Did anyone consider it to be human? Maybe it was someone either playing a joke or trying to scare off something?
