Bobcat Paid the Price for Its Pole Climbing

It’s not unusual to hear of a snake slithering into a power station and causing a power outage.

But how about the bobcat found dead hanging from a 35-foot power pole in southwest Kansas.

A line crew with Wheatland Electric made the discovery this week near the town of Lakin. The bobcat apparently climbed up the pole, came into contact with a pair of electrified lines and died instantly.
