Scary Cry of an Unknown Nocturnal Creature

This was filmed mostly in the dark, but you can hear the creature and there is some narration. Here's some background: Friends who've lived in the Tucson area for 30+ years have never heard a creature like this which was heard one night only -- Starting at about 11:00 p.m. on July 23, 2010., ten miles east of downtown Tucson, AZ, near Houghton Road above Speedway Blvd. This thing returned an hour later. It sounded bigger than Big Bird! Everybody head it -- nobody wanted to go outside! Next night was a gully-washer of a rainstorm, and no cries were heard that night, or any following night. There aren't too many theories on what this creature is. I tried to match-it-up against the calls of dozens of different owls and other night birds, without luck. One rancher claimed it might be some kind of toad, but that sounds unlikely to me. There was a weird feeling that night, as if this thing had come down from the darkness and was taunting us, or trying to attract us. The family I'm staying with refused to let me go outside the gate of their big sun porch to try to spot this creature...gun totin Arizonans -- they were afraid of it! Me? I find myself in mysterious realms time & again in my life, as my BIO will show nothing surprises me! Anyway, If anyone has any ideas on what it was, please comment. Recorded on July 23, 2010 using a Flip Video camcorder.
