So about 20 people have already e-mailed this story to me. Now I know what happened to our power on Sunday:
About 10,000 Juneau residents briefly lost power after a bald eagle lugging a deer head crashed into transmission lines.
“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.”
I feel awful for the eagle, but what the hell was a deer head doing in the landfill?
