A golf club in a Moscow suburb is warning residents to be on the lookout for an erstwhile employee: a brown bear, escaped from its residence at the club.
RIA Novosti reports that a private country club in Mytishchi notified local authorities last week that a bear kept on-property had escaped at night. Emergency services are undergoing search operations to try to find the animal, with help from animal control and hunting experts. An investigation is underway to discover the cause of the incident.
Our theory is that keeping bears at country clubs isn't a great idea. Bears and golf probably don't mix well (If a bear moves your golf ball, do you have to hit it from where it lies?).
The bear is described as "medium-sized" and "brown," which, as bears go, isn't a very descriptive set of characteristics.
