Wow. My son and I were at Lakewood yesterday evening and had an interesting experience at the tee on 11. We had just arrived at the tee and heard some loud scuffling way up in one of the really tall trees. We looked up just in time to see this squirrel falling to earth. I thought for sure we were going to witness something ugly.
With it's legs stretched out it reminded me of a skydiver and I swear it had one of those cartoon "surprised" looks just like this
It belly-flopped on the leaves and grass and one of it's young immediately landed just a foot away. The adult popped right up and went into defensive mode to guard it's young one, which was squealing loudly. It looked okay but wasn't positive as the adult put a firm bite on it and headed back up the tree.
My son and I just stood there in disbelief at what we'd just witnessed.
Looked like it'd all ended well as we drove up the hill off the tee.
