Look, I’m going to level with you here: This post contains a video of a bear cub frolicking on a golf course. You can keep reading the introductory patter if you want, or you can just go on ahead and watch the video, and we won’t blame you in the slightest.

The bear plays with the flag stuck into one of the holes on the course, because this bear knows how to make golf a more fun and interesting sport, and then the bear decides to up the ante by stealing the ball, because this bear — a black bear, according to Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, where this took place — does not see any reason why it cannot participate in the game. (Maybe it took a one-stroke penalty for ADORABLENESS, I don’t know, I don’t really get golf.)

Okay, that’s enough patter, here’s the video (via SB Nation):

Also, yes: Technically (“technically”), this occurred in Canada, somewhat outside the purview of this blog, though such rules only exist to be broken, we always say (we always say this, you just haven’t heard us say this before, trust us, we’ve just said it after you have left the room or something). Also, this occurred earlier in the week, so in Internet time it is roughly 5,000 years old, but that doesn’t really matter either, because it is a video of a baby bear on a golf course.
