As in the title, the caterpillar is quite agressive with an orangey red hook on its rear itll swing around if its touched. Found in central Alberta, my aunt hasnt seen them here in 20 years and theres some question as to what exactly it is. Help would be appreciated

I believe this is a Bedstraw Hawkmoth caterpillar. Very cool!
