Update: not wolves

The ranger at the backcountry desk who lives on site says there is a den of coyotes nearby and they have pups.

This shouldn't come as a surprise to me since the coyotes I've seen in Yosemite are robust shiny coated creatures that do not resemble their scraggly skinny Bay Area cousins.

Also, not a surprise I was mistaken since I'm from Philadelphia and probably better at distinguishing a .22 report from a .38 at 5 blocks range than classifying cries of wild dog species.

(Though I would have pee'd had I known it was just coyotes)
