Deer on a wire? Wild photos.

Maverick sent this to me....pretty wild.

Service call of the month from a Baltimore Gas &Electric residential
customer ... BGE received a 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". The customer service rep prudently trying
to gather helpful information to help diagnose the problem asked, "What deer"?
The customer replied " There is a deer on top of one of the electric poles on
Wilkes Rd about 1/2 mile west of perimeter Rd".
The customer service rep tried desperately to pull herself together and not
laugh in front of the customer 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 attached pictures.
Sure enough, the poor deer had been hit by a train &landed on top of a
distribution feeder pole!

It's weird that it's feet are gone. Reminds me of the movie "Stand By Me" where they find that kid who was hit by a train and the impact was so great it literally knocked him out of his shoes and left them sitting on the tracks...

...which is why I always slow down (or speed up real FAST!!!) when trains, or deer for that matter, are approaching. :lol:
Hi Gang!

That must been some speed to flip him vertically!:beer:
I heard this one other time but I think it said closer to us in ND so I did a search. I was right it was just north of the border. Here is the link.

Thanks for the link! I was silently questioning if the train impact indeed did flip the deer to it's position.

WOW, that had to be some train. Ain't no thomas the tank engine!
