If you're wondering what caused a Wednesday morning power outage in East Missoula, Montana, worry no longer because "NorthWestern Energy officials confirm that a baby fawn, dropped by a bald eagle" was to blame.

Lee Bridges soon noticed the power was out inside her house on Clyde Street and a NorthWestern Energy crew was already working in the alley nearby.

"I said, 'What was the problem?' So he rolls down the window and he points up in the air right over my head at this power line and goes, 'You see that?' And I look up and he goes, 'You've got a deer with wings.'"
