    I think it’s a gay Iranian goat. Mohammad does not like rejection.

    A friend of mine is a lineman and was involved in this one. They were stringing a new power line out to the new gold mine. They run the lines loose so they hang down on the ground for a half mile or more then crank them up and get them to tension. They noticed on one there was a lot more resistance but due to they trees and hills they couldn’t see why. When they rode back to check they saw this moose hanging 30′ up off the ground. The moose broke it’s neck in the process.

    I was wondering if they were doing a relocation via chopper and the net or straps broke. Would be an interesting story to hear how they got it down, although I can venture some guesses.

  6. I’ve heard of two areas out west, forget exactly where, that deer hang out near train tracks and more often than you might think, get hit by trains, catapulted into the air and hung up in near by power lines and on top of power poles. As I recall the article had several pictures.
