Beaver knocks out power in Linacy

LINACY – A busy beaver was the cause of a power outage in Linacy last night when the animal chewed through a tree.

David Rodenhiser, spokesman for Nova Scotia Power confirmed that a beaver chewed through a tree, causing it to fall and take out a power line.He said it’s “fairly rare” that the power company deals with outages caused by a beaver’s tree chomping tendencies

He said 175 customers were affected by the outage, which lasted from just before 11:30 p.m. Sunday to about 12:30 a.m. Monday.

Where on earth is Linacy you ask? And how can they possibly keep spending money to paint over the young vandals that change that suggestively wrong vowel?

It’s an unincorporated area of Nova Scotia. So no signs. Think “Shipping News” with beavers.
