Eagle Drops Fawn, Causes Power Outage
East Missoula experienced a power outage on Wednesday, the cause was something they would never expect. Resident Lee Bridges went out to inspect after the power went out. There are eagles in the area, and there was one close by at the top of a spruce tree. She had never seen one so close, however there are nests located across the river. Bridges said the eagle had eaten most of the fawn already and then dropped it on its way back to its nest.
NorthWestern Energy received the call that the power was out and sent a team to restore power. The crew saw the burn mark on the lines where the fawn made contact and what had caused the outage. They removed the carcass from the lines and power was restored in 30 minutes. From KRTV.com.
