Baboon left without electricity for tens of thousands of Zambians
The baboon climbed into the high voltage transformer at the power station Zesco in Zambia, left without electricity for 50 thousand inhabitants of the city of Livingston and the Western part of the province. This publication reports ZNBC News.
The Zesco representative Henry Capat (Henry Kapata) rejected suspicions that the reason for the lack of electricity had blackouts. He said that to blame a curious animal.
Baboon, from which the electricity was disconnected, was still alive. To approve Capati the palms of these animals do not conduct electricity, which allowed the monkey to survive. It was removed from the high-voltage equipment and gave it to treat the representatives of the environmental authorities of Zambia.
