A deer fawn dropped by a bald eagle onto a high-voltage power line knocked out electricity to residents in western Montana, according to an official of Northwest Energy. "It´s a first-time thing," she said.
The fawn, which was probably just days old, was discovered in the power lines by a homeowner who had also noticed a bald eagle nearby. Bald eagles´ wingspans reach to nearly eight feet and they can weigh up to 14 pounds.
Northwestern said that the dropped eagle food caused a power outage of about a half hour to about 30 homes.
