One of the guys on my welding forum posted a link to this, seems most think it's a fake. What do you think?

The 13kv transformer outside my house has fried a few squirrels and there is plenty left over. It is also a lot bigger blast. They hit the ground, cooked medium well, after a big boom and a flash of light you can see with the blinds closed.

Video is fake!
I agree with Greg, vaporizing don't happen. A young bald eagle take 13.2KV and there was deff a body.

4 leg creatures always leave something to remember them by. Years back, a cat that was on 7KV buss was hit twice, and there was still a body to clean out.

A rat climbed into 6600 Volt metal clad switchgear,
got across two phases.
The blast blew the door open and tripped
the feeder. But the rat was still there.
That shut down a paper machine on my watch.
