My sister and her husband walk every night along a trail at the base of the mountain. It is close to town and a frequently used path. One night on their way up, they were surprised by a 'coon that jumped out of the bushes. They hurried on past, but worried because they had to pass that way again to return home.

After reaching the turn-around point, they started back toward home. It was past dusk and they could just make out the trail ahead. As they approached the area where they had seen the racoon, they watched carefully to avoid the animal. All of the sudden they heard some bushes move behind them, then scurrying feet. They were a little concerned about this unseen nemesis, and quickened their pace. To no avail. They could tell that the animal was coming up quickly, though they couldn't see it in the darkness. Both of them broke into a run, with the coon close behind. They came out onto the road, and scurried home, breathless and relieved that they had got away from that terrible, stalking coon.

Did they find a hook in the side of their car after they got home?
