European Tour event brought to standstill after mass mongoose invasion

The Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa was brought to a halt as mongooses invaded the green

Television cameras caught the moment as 20 mongoose headed straight for the green.

The Nedbank Golf Challenge provides Henrik Stenson with the chance to grasp his second Race to Dubai if he wins at Sun City. Danny Willet, who’s in horrible form, needs to finish inside the top 10 to prevent this from happening.

The mongoose is well known for their ability to fight and kill venomous snakes, particularly cobras. They are adept at such tasks due to their agility, thick coats, and specialized acetylcholine receptors that render them resistant or immune to snake venom.
