This was when a sneaky alligator made off with a golfer’s ball on a Mississippi golf course.
In the video, shot in Gulfport and shared online by one of the males, golfers can be heard laughing as they zoom in on the animal with the ball in its jaws.
He is then seen crawling to the pond behind it and disappears underwater while still carrying the ball.
The golfers filmed the animal on Oct. 9 after one of them hit a ball that landed near the water.
The men can be heard exclaiming ‘my god’ as the animal picks up the ball between its jaws before one of the grinning players says, ‘He ate it!’
As the alligator begins to crawl back into the river, another man says, “That’s no good!”

One of the player’s wives shared the footage on October 20, quipped, “Is this a dropball now?”

It’s not the first time an alligator has disrupted a round of golf.
David Ksieniewicz was playing at a golf club in South Carolina in April when his shot landed on the back of an alligator.
He left the animal to waddle back into a lake with the ball at Okatie’s Spring Island Club.
Players usually have to take a shot from where the ball landed, but Ksieniewicz chose to reset.
He was granted permission because he had encountered “abnormal course conditions,” including “dangerous animals.”
