This story popped up on my FB feed, it's a serious what the fuck kind of story, I thought at first it was a spoof but then I noticed it's from the BBC.

Anyway, here we go.

A bull with an itchy bottom knocked a transformer off an electricity pole as he tried to scratch his backside - and cut power to 800 homes.
Four-year-old Ron managed to avoid the box as it landed in his field, and escaped an 11,000 volt shock from the tumbling cables.
But it left homes in three nearby villages in South Lanarkshire without electricity.
Owner Hazel Laughton told BBC Scotland she was amazed that Ron had survived.
It is thought that Ron, a limousin bull, brought the transformer down sometime between 22:00 and 23:00 on Thursday at East Shawtonhill Farm in Chapelton.
Mrs Laughton, who owns the farm with her husband Greg, said power was not restored to the local area until about 04:00 on Friday morning.
