BULL SCRATCHING ITSELF ON UTILITY POLE KNOCKS OUT POWER TO 700 HOMES
If only we could all be as oblivious as this bull. Hazel Laughton, of Scotland, recently posted an apology to a local Facebook group after her four-year-old bull, named Ron, rubbed against a utility polls and ended up knocking the transformer to the ground. The move knocked out electricity to more than 700 homes in the town. Laughton wrote, in part, “He had [an] itchy bum so [he] scratched it on the electricity pole and knocked the transformer off.” She also added that Ron is “happy to be alive,” as the bull managed to avoid a 11,000 volt shock from the fallen transformer box. The local utility company restored power a few hours later.
