Default Weirdest distraction you've had on the course

Inspired by a recent r/discgolf thread, what's the weirdest distraction you've had on the course?

Last year I had the box in my group at the Idlewild Open (am side) and was getting ready to tee off on hole 3 at Lincoln Ridge. After I took my first step, and just before I was about to turn away, I saw something moving around the basket. It was a doe, and it was casually moving toward the basket, which is easily reachable from the tee. I figured it would just move out of the way, but then its three fawns came out of the same rough and decided to take up residence by the basket. We had to send a runner down to spook them so I could tee off.

Funniest one I saw was at the same tournament, at Mt. Airy. I shot pretty well at Lincoln Ridge and was on lead card the next day at Mt. Airy. That course had a baby raccoon that was basically the course mascot. It followed us around for the first 5 holes or so. Another guy on my card had his tee shot go to the edge of the rough, and when he was throwing his upshot, it ran across his feet, causing him to shank it left. Then, as he was lining up his now-longer-than-expected putt, it ran under the basket and sat down by the pole. I was able to get it to follow me away from the green, but damn if that thing didn't have it out for him.

I was putting (for bird) on the 1st @ Nevin, and this cop just came walking out of the woodline, totally randomly, right behind the basket (from my POV.)

Nice guy, they had cops out there for a while on busy softball/park days, because of car break-ins. He said he got bored and went exploring or something. LOL.

Teeing off at the Original Course at Hudson Mills and a Sandhill Crane comes wandering out of the woods about 15ft in front of the tee. Far too close to a bird of that size. Don't know who was more surprised, the card I was on or the bird. The bird took flight after giving us the stink eye.

A blind man with a white cane was walking through the park course in Fort Stockton, TX. He was alone. I asked if he needed anything and he said, "I live here." He wandered in circles real slow. I don't think his mind was quite right. Mine wasn't either, that day. I don't like Ft. Stockton.

I don't believe I can be distracted playing frisbees though. It doesn't take much concentration, and I'm glad to take a minute to look at something else while playing.

Several years ago there were at least 100 geese sitting on the frozen lake at Shawnee S.P. in PA when I was playing. It wouldn't have been as big a distraction, but they all became quite frazzled for some reason, making a lot of noise. I looked up and saw the reason. There was a bald eagle circling overhead. I guess that I would have been a bit frazzled, too, had I been on its menu.

There apparently was a couple banging in a hammock at a tourney I was at. I didn't see it but several people were talking about it after the round...

A homeless guy on meth(?) aggressively yelled at our group, "how much are one of those bags?"
We didn't understand him, so he clarified, "I said, how much does it cost to look like a little b*tch?"

It was pretty amusing.
