VIDEO: Like that bear, mountain lion plays with golf course flagstick

Apparently, animals just can't help themselves when they see a flagstick on an unoccupied green at a golf course.

Last year, we had the example of the young bear that wrestled with a flagstick up in Canada. Now, we have new video of an Arizona mountain lion doing the same thing.

Wendie Marlais posted this video to Facebook of a mountain lion taking on a flagstick as a new wrestling buddy at Desert Mountain Golf Course in Scottsdale, Ariz. The mountain lion appears on the 18th green of the Chiricahua course and plays with the flagstick for a good minute, pulling down the stick to eye level, attacking the flag itself and having a good, albeit cautious time.
