Squirrel attacks power plant - act of terrorism?

Squirrel knocks out power to 5,000

Tue Aug 15, 4:11 PM ET
KOKOMO, Ind. - A wayward squirrel invaded a power substation and left more than 5,000 homes and businesses without electricity.

Duke Energy restored the service from the South Main Street substation near Wildcat Creek after about an hour Sunday night.
"We lost the squirrel and 5,039 customers for the space of an hour," Duke spokesman Rob Norris said.
The outage included much of the city's central neighborhoods west of U.S. 31


To the uninitiated, this may seem to be nothing more than a freakish occurence, but reliable sources tell us that Homeland Security has set up a Bureau of Squirrel Affairs to determine if there is a link to any known terrorist organizations within or without the animal world.

When you realize that there are thousands of squirrels running free in Central Park, for example, the threat of a NYC blackout becomes quite disturbing.

"Yes, I work at Bureau of Squirrel Affairs." This is got to be a chick magnet.
