You've heard the phrase "curiosity killed the cat." Well, on Wednesday, curiosity killed a raccoon. And knocked out the power for thousands in Seattle.
Nearly 39,000 people went without electricity during the early morning hours after a raccoon entered a substation and disrupted service.
Seattle City Light tweeted about the blackout confirming that a furry, bushy tailed critter caused the problem.
