A Moose And A Power Line

moose from a poleWired moose:

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s a bull moose hanging by its antlers from an electrical power line in the middle of the Alaska wilderness.

The prevailing theory is that the moose came across the sagging and swaying wires and, in a testosterone-filled moment, decided to challenge the power line to a fight, as bull moose are known to do during the rut, or mating season.

Workers didn’t know the moose was tangled in the line until they tightened it and detected a problem.

It was still alive when it was lowered to the ground, but sadly, had to be killed.
