“Oh, look at that cutie” - “Oooh mum look at that squirrel!”
Awhhhh. Squirrels. Sah Cute. Adorable.
*mumbles* W-what?! [ confused x2 ]
Apparently, the world won’t end in fire. Not by ice. SO NOT by kamikaze attacks on the power grid by squirrels.
It’s just a possibility. Maybe.
Squirrels really love to bite and gnaw on things.
*Interesting Fact: Also gnawing on power plant lines. *
*Another Interesting Fact: Squirrels bite anything they can see.*
Squirrels cut power to a regional airport in Virginia, a Veterans Affairs medical center in Tennessee, a university in Montana and a Trader Joe’s in South Carolina. Five days after the Trader Joe’s went down, another squirrel cut power to 7,200 customers in Rock Hill, S.C., on the opposite end of the state. Rock Hill city officials assured the public that power outages caused by squirrels were “very rare” and that the grid was “still a reliable system.” Nine days later, 3,800 more South Carolinians lost power after a squirrel blew up a circuit breaker in the town of Summerville.
Don’t Panic. Theres more. But I’m not writing more (not because im lazy but that there’s too much cases of squirrels cutting out power.
To add on, there are squirrels that electrocute themselves. Mmm.
But that’s not all. There’s two more that disrupt - uh - electricity.
