Fowl play: ‘Shots fired’ turns into ‘goose getting cooked’

(Pixabay)

A report of shots fired gets the attention of any police department. More so when there are multiple reports of shots fired.

But in Thermopolis, Wyoming, the resulting investigation led only to a goose that had been cooked by hitting a power line.

A new report from the Cowboy State Daily explained a residential camera “picked up the audio from the incident.”

The shot, recorded at about the 10-second point, was followed by a power outage.

“Long story short,” the city’s police reported, “a goose hit the power lines near the Hot Springs State Park dog park.”

Apparently, the collision triggered grid fuses to blow, too.

Former state lawmaker Tyler Lindholm, also a former power lineman, explained such incidents have occurred before, but usually involve eagles, or owls.

“This is the first time I’ve heard of a goose getting cooked.”

He told the publication, “You need something that maintains current between the two phases. Clearly, the goose in this situation was robust enough that it held current for a long enough period of time. That’s what blew the fuses.”

“It went phase to phase, not phase to ground.”

Another video showed a similar event in Illinois.

WND SPECIAL REPORT – “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS”: From the Biden administration’s enthusiastic support for amputating body parts of troubled children, to its obsession with bringing as many millions of illegal aliens, terrorists and Chinese soldiers as possible into America, it is increasingly clear that many of this nation’s current leaders are, to put it plainly, stark raving mad.

Indeed, psychiatric experts are finally documenting how the symptom profiles of scary conditions like “Borderline Personality Disorder” and “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” PERFECTLY MATCH today’s top leaders.

One groundbreaking peer-reviewed study published in 2023 documents how left-wing extremism is closely associated with “psychopathic tendencies.” Likewise, retired psychiatrist Brad Lyles, M.D., explains how “one way of understanding the increasingly outlandish beliefs and behaviors of the left is through the lens of Borderline Personality Disorder.” And one of America’s top forensic psychiatrists, Lyle Rossiter, M.D., described Barack Obama’s mental state as “Malignant Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Consider a typical description of sociopathy: “Sociopaths are often well-liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” Remind you of anyone?

From Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to their presidential Cabinet – including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra – all of these people “have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly.”

But it’s not just Democrat leaders. Multiple surveys now show how rank-and-file Democrats are TWICE as likely to be diagnosed with a mental disorder as Republicans – from depression to bipolar disorder to schizophrenia to narcissistic personality disorder. All this and much more is stunningly laid out in the March edition of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS.” Don’t miss it – you will see the whole political-cultural-spiritual war raging in the U.S.A. in a whole new light.
