'Flying' Deer causes power outage in Montana


Recommended Posts

HELENA, Mont. ? A Montana resident says an energy company has identified the cause of a brief power outage as "deer with wings."

Lee Bridges says she was outside with her dogs around the time the power went out when a NorthWestern Energy truck pulled up, giving her a chance to ask the driver what caused the problem.

She says he pointed up and said, "Apparently, we've got deer with wings."

Bridges looked up and saw a dead fawn on a power line.

It's unlikely the animal had an accident while trying to make like distant-cousin Rudolph. Bridges suspects that an eagle dropped its prey and couldn't retrieve it.

The lineman who removed the carcass from the power line said he'd never seen anything like it.

Calling a "deer" is generous, it's a fawn and only a few pounds tops - well within the capabilities of a golden ot bald eagle. I've seen large red tailed hawks (wingspan 5-6 feet) carry off small dogs.

You'd think the old guy would have enough decency to come back for him. I guess he's off drunk somewhere.
