Canadian Squirrels keep their eyes on the ball Is it a birdie? Is it an eagle? No, it's a squirrel... Macguru
The rodents keep their eyes on the balls that land on Riverside's fairways, then dart out to grab them and run.
The squirrels' thieving ways are so common that Riverside has a special course rule.
Wilder said a player can replace his ball without penalty if fellow golfers agree where it landed on the fairway.

Thats insane Macguru
I wonder what would happen if golfers dipped their (golf) balls in fox urine for a season? MatthewHSE
Or maybe some sort of red-pepper solution? Macguru
I would be curious to see a golfer whiping sweat from his forhead, picking his nose, or removing dust from his eyes after handling golf balls dipped in capsicum. lorax
You'd rather see the results of fox urine?! :)
I think it's a hoot - but then I'm not losing $20 worth of balls.
>> You'd rather see the results of fox urine?!
It can't be worst, just imagine how fast would a fox run after peeing some red-pepper oil... :)
Happened to me once. Hit a lovely approach about 15 feet from the pin. As I was walking up to the green, the frekin rodent ran up and swiped my ball. Macguru
Hope it was on this very same facility?

Golf balls may look like mushrooms to the squirrels
Andrew McAdam, who did his PhD in red squirrel genetics at the University of Alberta, is now an assistant professor of evolutionary ecology at Michigan State University.
I am curious of what kind of fix they will find.
It happened to me, too. I'm pretty sure my drive went in the cup, but when I got to the green I couldn't find the ball. There were several squirrels nearby, though, and one of them looked kind of guilty. ;) Leosghost
