Animal Planet just put up a random trivia quote saying a wolf's howl doesn't echo. Is that really true or is it like a duck's quack that echoes at a frequency so low we humans just can't hear it?

Any sound will echo in the right circumstances. To get a single echo, you must have something that reflects the sound with a delay, while for a multiple echo, there must be more than one reflecting surface. As to ducks, see http://www.snopes.com/critters/wild/duckecho.htm There is absolutely no reason why a wolf howl would not echo if the wolf howls in a place that echoes. Probably, in the wild they do not howl in places that echo. Forests tend to be sound absorbers rather than reflecters.

Directed by Greg Hoblit, "Frequency" premiered in 2000, a good year for a millennium-type film. It's an exceptionally good "time-travel-ish" crime thriller with a heavy accent on the father-son relationship.
