Here is something one does not see everyday. Let’s hope not at least. The next time there is a power outage in your area, maybe you should look to the sky to see if there are any American Bald Eagles flying in the vicinity.

Approximately 10,000 Juneau, Alaska residents lost their power when an American Bald Eagle carrying a deer head crashed in to transmission lines. “Overly ambitious eagle”, I guess.
“You have to live in Alaska to have this kind of outage scenario,” said Gayle Wood, an Alaska Electric Light & Power spokeswoman. “This is the story of the overly ambitious eagle who evidently found a deer head in the landfill.”
The bird, weighed down by the deer head, apparently failed to clear the transmission lines, she said. A repair crew found the eagle dead, the deer head nearby.
