Power Out? Look For A Deer Crossing thanks to Roy Bishop

Manitoba Hydro received a phone call from a customer saying, “My power is out. When you come to fix it be sure to bring a truck with a tall enough bucket to remove the deer.”

Trying to diagnose the problem, the customer service rep asked, “What deer?”

The customer replied, “There is a deer on top of one of the electric poles on Wilkes Road, about 1/2 mile west of Perimeter Road.”

The customer service rep tried desperately to pull herself together and replied, “We will dispatch someone right away to investigate the power outage. Thank you for the call.”

Upon completion of the call, the customer service rep proceeded to share the funny story with her coworkers in the office and they all had a good laugh.

Well, low and behold, the serviceman who repaired the problem stopped by the customer service office the following day with the following pictures. Sure enough, the poor deer had been hit by a train, and landed on top of a distribution feeder pole.
