One afternoon I watched a Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) in an alfalfa field in front of my home give an extremely loud and scary vocalization. If I had not seen the sound-maker I would have never guessed that it was an animal as small as a fox.
Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes)
Other than coyotes, foxes are the animal that is the most mis-identified with bigfoot / sasquatch sounds. I have spoken with several excited witnesses who just knew what they recorded was a sasquatch but upon listening to their recordings it became evident that it was a fox.

The following recordings demonstrate a few of the many sounds the Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) uses.
