Transformer zaps squirrel

Kitchener – About 1,200 households in the south end of Kitchener were without power for 42 minutes yesterday after a squirrel was zapped on a transformer. “We had a bit of a squirrel issue,” said Kevin Goetz, operator at Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro. The 6:15 a.m. outage occurred in the area of King Street and Sportsworld Drive and affected homes in the neighbourhoods of River and Morrison roads.
