Thanks guys, for making this such a popular thread over the years.
I guess I'm living a more sedate life now, I have very few spooky stories to tell.
The closest thing I've had recently is this:
On Superbowl Sunday, 2014, my fiancee was about to leave my house for the evening, and we were standing on the deck at the "road-side" of the house. Down the road a ways, a bunch of dogs were barking at coyotes that were howling across the river.
All of a sudden, there was a long deep howl, like nothing I'd heard before, except in werewolf movies and documentaries of wolves. The hair stood up on my neck, and I asked, "Did you hear that?" Viv said, "Was that a wolf, or are we imagining it?" Just as she finished saying that, it howled again. We weren't imagining it. All the dogs and coyotes were now dead silent. Whatever this thing was, it had huge lungs, because the howl was long, as well as loud. We both had a sudden feeling of not being safe.
Of course, DNR will tell you "There ARE NO wolves in Indiana!", which is what they say about anything unusual. It had been an unusually cold winter through late 2013, and I'd seen unusual animals in the area (like the "fisher cat" in the tree at the back of my house.) A few days after we heard the wolf, a police acquaintance on Facebook posted a story about being called out a couple of nights earlier, to his friend's house, where horses had been attacked. He's a K-9 handler, and familiar with pack animals and their behavior. He said the horses had torn up throats (I think he had to put two of them down), which is different from how coyotes bring down large animals (usually leg and tendon bites, he says).
The horses that were attacked were about 20 miles east of my location, which sounded like a reasonable distance for something like a wolf to travel over the course of a few days.
After the horse attack, there were a few sightings further east yet, where people saw "extremely large dogs" traveling in a pack, according to DNR.
They may not be evil, but a wolf howl will definitely get your attention!
