"Winged Deer" Causes Montana Power Outage

"Winged Deer" Causes Montana Power Outage

When a power outage strikes, the last thing anyone would imagine as being the cause would be a deer...especially when the power lines stretch high above the ground.

However, when a NorthWestern Energy truck responded to a customer service call in Helena, Montana the technician discovered the power outage was indeed caused by fawn that was hanging from the power lines.

Santa probably doesn't need to check the stable to make sure rudolph and company are all accounted for. It's believed that the "winged fawn" actually fell to an eagle, who then dropped its prey while aloft.
