That was either a beastie with gastric problems or a beastie seriously p*ssed off at numbnuts with loud outboard motors and exposed propeller blades buzzing up and down all day. Given my anthropomorphic tendencies and the scars to the beastie's bodywork I'm going with the latter. It was blowing rasperries and giving them one last warning.

Luna was very well known here on the island.

However I would not really call him wild, he was far too habituated to humans....

Sounds more like he's imitating an American from the Midwest.
