Critters can't help it ?!?

"Suzanne Millman, a professor of applied animal behaviour with the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, said the problem is likely linked to young, immature animals not used to leaping from line to line. During mating season, the animals may also find it more difficult to keep their minds on the task at hand, she said."

At my place of work, we used to dispatch squirrels, snakes, and even an occasional owl or two to their heavenly reward so frequently, we had to resort to cutting tree limbs shorter and putting metal collars on electric poles. Used to give the Physical Plant people fits when they had to go around and re-start all the air conditioning equipment.

The cuisine at the cafeteria hasn't been the same since...
