Snake Trouble 2 – Niigata Blackout

July 1, 2008

At about 5:35 pm, in Niigata a snake caused a black out in about 1,190 locations for as long as 2 hours in some places. The snake died of electrocution related injuries.

A representative from the Tohoku Electric Company commented that the snake, which had worked its way into a plastic safety covering on the wires was probably looking for some food.
