    Post It was hairy stuff.

    From Daily Express | UK News | Drug police made me eat my milk powder says MP | Drug police made me eat my milk powder says MP

    In the text below, what does "hairy stuff" mean?

    Mr Fabricant said: We were in a range of mountains which are not generally considered drug baron country when seven heavily-armed young men approached us on a jungle trail. It was hairy stuff.

    Re: It was hairy stuff.

    An idiom meaning that it was somewhat dangerous and frightening, but also exciting.
