So I came over a little rise and saw a big raccoon hightail it away as soon as she saw me. Didn't think much of it as we see them all the time. But when I walked past where she was I got a good display from this baby raccoon. There were two of them, which apparently didn't get the memo to flee when mom took off, but this one was really giving it a go with his defensive posture.
The first thing was a hissing/growly kind of noise that certainly gives one a bit of a start when suddenly coming from a few feet away from your boots. Then it arched its back high and raised all the fur on its back making it seem much larger and more dangerous than it was.
The second baby buggered off pretty quickly, but this one stood his ground letting me get within maybe three feet before deciding I really was bigger than he was and that it was time to run.
