Imagine: you're out for a stroll in the Maine woods on a crisp autumn day. You hear some rustling in the loose leaves that blanket the forest floor. After a a brief stir, a (blank) trots onto the path in front of you. You breath a sigh of relief because you know with all your years of training that you can best this beast.

Fill in the blank and let us know what you believe the largest animal you can handle in the Maine wild is. (Note - you're just out for a walk. No hunting gear. You have only nature to protect yourself with.)
