' Deer with wings' causes power outage in Montana
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.
