Snake causes power outage on Clemson's campus

Black snakes are widely known for helping control the mice and rat populations. However, one mischievous and bold black snake decided to literally shut down part of Clemson's campus this morning.
According to an email from Inside Clemson, the following REALLY happened:
At 6 a.m. Wednesday, a black snake climbed on top of the Duke Energy transmission power lines serving the main campus substation in an area just outside the South Carolina Botanical Gardens. This caused a fault in the main transmission lines, which resulted in power outages on Clemson’s main campus.
Duke Energy dispatched crews to address the outage, and power was restored to campus at 7:45 a.m.
This is certainly a future movie idea if the Sharknado movies became a thing, I don't see why a rogue snake can't take down power grids across the nation.
RIP BLACK SNAKE - WAY TO GO OUT WITH A BANG!
