"A wayward squirrel made contact with a circuit breaker and triggered a power outage that affected 9,900 customers in the Marina del Rey and Westchester communities (Los Angeles areas), utility officials said Thursday.
The outage was reported at 3:28 p.m. when a distribution station near Los Angeles International Airport lost power, said Albert Rodriguez, a spokesman with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
Utility crews dispatched to the scene found that a squirrel had made its way onto a circuit breaker, he said."
This was not just a wayward squirrel. This was a suicide squirrel, a terrorist squirrel, sent to disable our electrical grid.
No, not really :)
