    Hole dug by fox in bunker

    While playing today I landed in a bunker. Although thankfully my ball was not in it, there was a hole that had clearly been dug by a fox (paw prints visible and a "present" left beside the hole). The hole was about 6 inches deep and 9 inches diameter. Had my ball gone in there, it would certainly have been unplayable. Given that a fox is not a burrowing animal, would this have just been a case of tough luck? That would seem utterly unfair.

    (NB. After I played out of the bunker, I filled in the hole with sand while raking).

    I'd say that a fox is a burrowing animal. Certainly are around here 😉

    Foxes are most certainly burrowing animals.

    Just a thought - could have been a fox, could have been a stray dog....
