Deer Causes Power Outage In Missoula; But How Did It Get Up In The Power Lines?

When residents in East Missoula reported a power outage, they probably would never have guessed it was a deer that caused it. No it was not a reindeer, or at least we don’t think so.

All the evidence is pointing to a simple but yet still peculiar string of events that caused a deer to be stuck in a power line 30 ft in the air. A bald eagle most likely was attempting to fly off with the baby deer carcass when it dropped the deer onto the power lines and could not retrieve it.

I’ve never heard of anything like this happening before. Maybe the eagle was just trying to make deer jerky. World’s smartest bald eagle? Possibly.
