The neighbors confirmed it: a coyote.
In my backyard.
I called animal control who told me to keep an eye on him. They don't respond to just a "wildlife call," but if the animal appears to be injured or rabid they will come take care of it.
Usually such animals are nocturnal so when they are out in daylight it usually means they are injured or rabid. Not a good news.
I am keep an eye on my backyard. And hope the squirrels stay up in their house.
