Think "Opossum On A Porch." Well, I don't quite have a porch, but there is a front staircase and I like the alliteration. Also, the opossum that I saw was not growling at me like the one in this Wikipedia picture, but I was still freaked out.
Last night, I had a very exciting night doing laundry. Outside of my house, there are two big bushes, one on each side of the stairs. There are a bunch of trees in the back and I guess some little creatures find it quite habitable.
As I was leaving my house, I looked down and saw a little pig snout face looking up at me. I quickly looked away, so it wouldn't think I was trying to confront it and attack me. I had this happen to me some years ago in a parking garage with a raccoon. It didn't attack me, but I saw it and we kind of locked eyes and I thought it was going to kill me, so I kind of looked away while backing up slowly.
Anyway, I hurried to my car and hoped it wouldn't follow. When I backed my car out of the driveway, I aimed my headlights at the stairs and hoped the light would frighten it. It did not. It continued sitting on the side of the stairs! Luckily it was gone when I came back. Geesh!
