Bear Spins Circles: Golf Course Cub Dances With Flag Pole (Video)

By    |   Thursday, 11 Sep 2014 03:01 PM

A baby bear on a golf course spun in circles and appeared to be "dancing" with a flag pole at a British Columbia course this week, briefly entertaining a group of golfers.

The incident was posted on YouTube Monday and has received more than 181,000 views of the cub bending, twisting, and then spinning in circles with the flag pole, much to the delight of the golfers, who were at the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort in British Columbia, which is about 185 miles outside of Calgary, Alberta.

At one time, the cub uses the flag pole as a back scratcher before trying to bend the pole all the way down to ground only to see it pop right back up again. Appearing frustrated at this point, the cub makes a beeline toward the ball of one of the golfers, puts it in his mouth and walks away with it, ignoring the pleas from one of the golfers to "put it in the hole, buddy."

The cub's miscue cost the golfer a penalty stroke, if they were playing strictly by the rules, but it surely left the group with plenty of golf stories to tell for a long time.

ABC News said Andi Dzilums, the person who shot the dancing baby bear video, and his friends were playing on the Mountainside Golf Course at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort when the cub showed up to do his (or her) pole dance.

While the potential of coming across a black bear could be frightening, if humans take certain precautions, like staying away and letting the bears do their thing like the golfers did, the outcome is generally positive.

"Behavior varies among individual bears, even within the same population," according to a  study called Managing Human-Black Bear Conflict done by Mississippi State University, the State of Mississippi, and others in 2011. "However, black bears are typically shy, solitary animals that will congregate around food resources, pair up or compete during mating season or travel in family groups."
