A squirrel has caused widespread power outage in Pennsylvania.
This was after it climbed a utility pole in the city and knocked out the power, resulting in total darkness.
Todd Meyers, Spokesman for power provider, Penelec said about 765 people lost power at about 9:43 am on Monday morning in Granville township and Lewistown Borough.
BestNewsGH.com can report that repair crews that worked on the poles after they were called in, blamed the squirrel which climbed the utility pole near an intersection and came into contact with electrical equipment.
BestNewsGH.com is informed the power outage lasted 1 hour and was restored at 10:30 am.
Mr. Meyers added that the crew installed animal protection gear on the repaired equipment to prevent a repeat incident.
