If you hear a mountain lion screaming, how close is it?

Female mountain lions will scream to attract a mate, and males will do it as well.

This YouTube video and this one both have audio of what it sounds like.

Given how loud it sounds, would there be any way of estimating how far away the mountain lion is?
