Kentucky Fried Possum.

Thanks to Michael Delahaye, author and journalist, for this story and photo. Michael says,

“There was an almighty explosion with blinding light around 01.30 this morning in Kingswood, Adelaide.

The little critter had climbed the Stobie pole opposite our house and bridged the live wires.

The transformer at the top of the utility pole was blown apart, sending bits of red hot shrapnel across the street – which set fire to a neighbour’s fence and resulted in the appearance of not one, but two fire engines. And a dozen neighbours in fashionable night-time attireā€¦

Requiescat in Possum?”
