SEDONA, Arizona (WJW) – A prestigious golf course in Arizona is trashed.
The culprit? A herd of javelina.
Just take a look at the damage below. A video posted to X, formerly known as Twitter, by Em Casey and shared via Storyful shows dug-up mounds of turf.
According to local reports, most of the damage was done to about four or five holes of the course and repairs would require potential weeks of work.
Never heard of a Javelina?
They’re boar-like animals and are common in much of central and southern Arizona.
According to the Arizona Game and Fish Department, “Javelina usually cause only minor problems for people by surprising them or eating a few plants. However, people should NEVER feed javelina. This can cause them to become regular visitors and lose their fear of people, creating problems for the neighborhood.”
Javelina are “highly social animals” and often live in herds of a dozen or more, according to the U.S. National Park Service.
