Animal "Attacks" on Power Systems - Worry About Squirrels

BBC news has published an interesting report on "Squirrel 'threat' to critical infrastructure".

According to the report "The real threat to global critical infrastructure is not enemy states or organisations but squirrels, according to one security expert.
Cris Thomas has been tracking power cuts caused by animals since 2013.
Squirrels, birds, rats and snakes have been responsible for more than 1,700 power cuts affecting nearly 5 million people, he told a security conference."
