If those are railway signal wires, why was a PoCo Faultsman dispatched to fix an outage near this?.
Also, that ain't a Roo, they have MUCH longer tails than that!. [Linked Image]

A lot of the General Public don't know the difference between hydro lines and the lines that the railways have running besides their tracks. This series of pictures are an example of what Canadian National Railway uses in Manitoba.

Canadian Pacific railway (the other major Canadian railway) uses instead of open lines multi pair communication cable that resembles telephone trunk cable, so Manitoba Telecom often gets the first call when sombody sees a line down over a crossing.

In Manitoba we say hydro line to refer to any of the lines that Manitoba Hydro uses to get power to us. I guess that other areas may call them utility lines or electric lines.

Doesn't matter if its a transmission line from the dams or the drop to the house we use the same term.

For example there was an underground hyrdo fault Friday night in the city center and the newspaper headlines were "Downtown hydro lines cause fire"

sparky,
I reckon that, that cow, leapt up into that tree when the cow was having a swim, to avoid a croc in the water.
Dunno how it's going to get down, looks like it's firmly wedged there.
Somehow, this sounds as far-fetched as my Deer falls from chopper theory.

The cow thought he jump over the moon. Where the cat with the fiddle.

Looks like a lot of water around. I suspect this is the result of a flood.

More theories:

1. Maybe there was 15' of snow on the ground when the deer was walking along and he thought he'd jump over what he thought was low fence wires. ZAP!

2. The deer was riding along on top of the train...put there perhaps by drunken pranksters, or chased there by hunters. Regardless, the deer got tired of his precarious perch, what with slippery hooves on sheet metal and all. He wanted to jump to the cold, hard ground, but he had enough horse sense to chill on that idea. When he saw the double T-bar on top of that pole, it looked like the answer. After all, he had been watching T-bars roll by all day, and he was starting to get his courage up. He launched, almost landing all 4 hooves on the double T-bar, but the rear hooves slipped off, he was electrocuted and his hooves blew off like champagne corks at a wedding.

3. Some of those country boys up there got one of those big catapults, and, well...when you run out of cars and other inanimate objects, you've got to search for decent payload somewhere.

4. It wasn't deer season. It was shot in the foot. The hunters had to ditch the body somewhere, and they needed a decent alibi. "Hey! How about the power lines?" "Let's cut the feet off so nobody finds the bullet hole! We'll say the train hit the deer!"
