In my neck of the woods, the spookiest thing you could run into in the dark is a surprised javelina. That's why around this time of year in Arizona we have to be careful where we leave our jack-o-lanterns. Javees consider jack-o-lanterns a real Autumn treat. If you accidentally surprise them while they're feasting on your hard work, you're liable to get the short end of a sharp tusk through several major muscle groups. Stepping into a group of javelina is like falling off a wall into a cyclone of carving knives. They get mad and ask questions later.
Their only redeeming quality is their odor precedes them well in advance of the damage they do.
