"A band of thieves has made a local golf course its favorite hunting ground, but they're so darn cute that law enforcement might let this one slide.
A skulk of foxes (yes, that's the official term for a group of foxes) has taken up residence at Los Lagos Golf Course in San Jose and, according to a Mercury News story, they're stealing everything from sandwiches to cell phones to GPS trackers.
"They once got my sandwich and a third of a banana," Los Lagos golfer Paul Cook told the Mercury News. "Worked the zipper on my bag to get it; I didn't think that was possible."
The foxes have been there at least a decade, but they've gotten increasingly brazen and less people-shy. While golfers' backs are turned, they've taken to rifling through their golf carts for anything that smells delicious."
