DENVILLE, N.J., June 20 (UPI) -- A golfer who spotted a young fox on a New Jersey course started recording in time to catch the animal stealing his ball and running away.
A video posted to YouTube by CJ Kern shows the fox cub wandering around the green on a hole at the Peace Pipe Country Club in Denville June 13.
The fox wanders around as Kern films, commenting that the fox appears interested in a golf ball, which is on the ground nearby.
The fox eventually approaches the ball, repeatedly getting up close to the object before cautiously retreating.
The cub instead crosses the green to Kern's ball, which is further away from the humans.
The indecisive fox bats and pushes at the ball a few times before smacking it past the hole.
"Put it in the hole, the hole's over here," Kern says in the video.
The fox then snatches the ball in its jaws and trots away.
"And there it goes," Kern says.
