Bears are scary, no matter the size. They're especially frightening in an open field when they can run directly at you. That's basically what driving ranges and golf courses are, so spotting a bear in either place might make you understandably tremble a little.
On Wednesday up in Calgary (that's in Canada), a black bear meandered onto Earl Grey Golf Club. The bear found its way to the driving range, getting tangled in and climbing up the tall boundary fence (where you most certainly don't hit the ball) and then escaping briefly onto the course before going into the surrounding neighborhood.
Just remember: If a black bear attacks you, DO NOT PLAY DEAD, according to the Get Bear Smart Society.
