Fortean Times - - Strange Days -

At 2.10am on 28 July, a racoon wan­dered into a power sta­tion in the Ber­lin sub­urb of Siemensstadt, caus­ing a short-cir­cuit in an 110,000-volt trans­former and an ex­plo­sion heard up to four miles away that woke up thou­sands of Ber­lin­ers. A tur­bine ground to a halt, caus­ing a loud dron­ing nose for 35 min­utes. The racoon was un­scathed. Times, 29 July 2017.
