Was that sequence of sounds recorded non-stop (which it sounds like) or did you record a few and repeat them?  My old ears wish it was a cleaner recording with no other sounds, but actually it is a pretty good capture of a wild sound.

A number of animals could make that sound, including canines as others have said, and the sequence fits some hounds.  If you were way north I'd guess lynx.

It is bobcat mating season now (and also coyote time) and though I've not heard a bobcat make that exact sound I've heard them make close enough that I'd lean that way.  I listened to a cougar make a high pitched LOUD big bird cry kind of sound.  It was quite different and much less frequent than this sound but in the ballpark enough that I'm sure a cougar could make the cry you recorded. 

From experience I have concluded that many kinds of animals make a much wider variety of sounds than the few associated with them.  That makes it difficult when we hear an animal make a sound we never connected with them.  I listened to a lynx make several sounds one time and would never have even considered lynx till I saw the animal and saw it making the sounds.  Over 20 minutes I thought that it was a mule deer doe, then a coyote, then a raven, and about fell over when the lynx walked out making the sounds Id been listening to.  Coyotes and cougars have large vocabularies, way beyond howls, barks, whistles and screams.  Wish we knew what made this sound.  It might surprise us!

Okanagan, the sounds were recorded continuously except I did cut out a few seconds toward the beginning of the clip as it was just the person shifting around. They recorded it from their bedroom window. Sounds like the general consensus of the group so far is that it could have been canine or feline.

Sounds a tiny bit like a gobbler to me. I don't hear canine at all in this. Very unusual sound.

A quick google vocalization search and your sound sounds a lot like a fox. I cant figure out how to capture a youtube link on my phone. Just search youtube for fox calls.
