Residents of west Winnipeg were dealing with another power outage Friday after a crow crashed into and damaged a power station, said Manitoba Hydro.

This marks the second crow-related outage in as many days.

An outage Thursday that affected thousands of customers on the city’s western edge was apparently caused by a murder of crows making contact with equipment at a substation – and Friday’s issues seem to have the same cause.

Hydro said they’re hoping to have the problem resolved later Friday afternoon.
