Hungry beavers cause energy crisis in Russian villages

Two villages in the Kirov region of Russia have recently suffered from a small albeit curious energy crisis. The villages were disconnected from electric power for several hours as a result of a state of emergency, which occurred on a local power line.

It was a group of beavers living in a small river not far from the power line, which caused the small-scale blackout in the two villages. Beavers felled a tall aspen tree that was growing on a bank of the river. The tree fell down right on the wires of the power line. The emergency system automatically disconnected the damaged line from electric power.

Specialists of the local power company removed the felled tree, spanned the new wire, and village residents were lucky to enjoy electricity in their homes again. The beavers remained unpunished.
