June 6 (UPI) -- A surprised golfer in Alaska captured video of some bears roughhousing on the golf course and making off with the flag from a hole.

Alissa Stefan posted a video to Facebook that she said was captured by her son, Trevor, at Moose Run Golf Course in Anchorage.


The video shows a bear cub wrestling with the flag pole at the 7th hole of the course before two of its siblings show up.

The three bears wrestle with each other and the pole until the flag falls from the top of its post.

One of the bears makes off with the flag.

Trevor Stefan said he watched the bears for some time, but left when one of them ran toward him.

"I've never seen them playing around like that before," Stefan told the Anchorage Daily News. "It was pretty funny."
