So what does it mean when you see a goat hanging from power lines in a neighborhood?

That the local drug dealers aren't smart enough to barbecue, or are lacking a cherry picker?

FTA: "Kieffer says they will review the incident and make any changes necessary in order to prevent it from happening again."

Change number 1: Stop flying at elk height.

A copter flew *choppity choppity*
too close to an athletic wapiti.
the elk in a flash
caused the copter to crash,
down to the ground full stoppity.

I've heard of elk affecting traffic before, never thought it'll be air traffic.

It's hard to find a picture of an elk manning a anti aircraft gun or flying a fighter jet.

DWR contracted the helicopter, which was staffed with a two-man crew from Australia.

Well there's your problem.  They drive on the wrong side of the earth down there

Aha. Everything is deadly in Australia, because everything is deadly to Australians.

They were looking UP, watching for the drop bears.  Elk caught 'em by surprise.

Quadrupeds can fly.

That is why they are frequently found in trees and on power lines.

My favourite flying flying quadruped sketch remains the Monty Python Flying Sheep episode.

The accent that Chapman is doing is Somerset rural. But British accents have been retreating deeper into the countrry for a couple of centuries know, so you could have heard something of the "Somerset" accent much further East in 1900. And it may well be gone by 2100.
