Gray squirrel

A squirrel, not necessarily this one, created a power outage in Verona Thursday.

JERRY DAVIS -- For the State Journal

A power outage in Verona Thursday was the work of a squirrel.

Alliant Energy said a squirrel that got into equipment  shortly before 8:30 a.m. disrupted power to 2,172 customers. Power was restored at about 10 a.m.

There was no word on the fate of the squirrel but it likely will no longer cause more outages - ever.
