Cute Baby Bear Gives Show at Golf Course

As a human, it’s hard to curb the yearning to run amok on a golf coarse – the perfectly manicured lawn just screams to be raced over – so it’s no surprise that wild animals are spotted on fairways and greens every once in a while. In fact, if I were a wild (non-human) animal, I would most definitely claim a bunker on a golf course my home; after all, it’s hard to beat expansive vibrant greenery and golden sand.

But apparently a family of bears in south-eastern British Columbia, Canada, beat me to it: they took to the golf course at Fairmont Hot Springs, playing like circus animals on the putting green. In the following video, a cub is shown clowning around at one of the resort’s holes, taking a keen liking to the pin that he proceeds to bat like a kitten does a feather teaser. Just watch: it’s un-bear-ably cute.

Wildlife guides in Canada will take you to see anything from moose and whales to wolves and sea otters in places from Alberta to Nova Scotia, but what they may now have to add to their list of places to go wildlife spotting are golf courses. Whether you’re on a kayak tour, a mountain bike tour, or a hiking tour, you may come across a racoon, squirrel, rabbit or coyote, but to see cute baby bears, it seems that the trick is to head to a local golf course.
