Stray Rocket Kills Bull, Cuts Power Supply in Russia’s Far East

Created: 22.07.2005 12:40 MSK (GMT +3), Updated: 12:40 MSK

A village of Birofeld in Russia’s Jewish autonomous area was partially hit by a power outage, after a missile accidentally launched from the backyard of a local resident’s house destroyed a power line and flew into a barn where it killed a bull, the Interfax news agency reported Friday.

Local police said in a report the rocket was launched from the yard of a man who earned his living by collecting scrap metal. The man claimed the missile went off as he was sawing a piece of metal and a spark fell on the rocket.

The rocket first ploughed through the man’s vegetable garden and hit the barn killing a bull before flying over the village, destroying a TV antenna on the roof of a one-story building and hitting a power line. It fell in woods near pasture where goats were grazing.

As a result, electricity supplies to the village were disrupted for 24 hours.

Shortly afterwards, the metal wires from the destroyed power lines were stolen by scrap metal hunters, the agency said in a report.



Oh shit, officer, I'm sorry. It must have been a ND.

Geez - those guys don't waste any time.

Speaking of odd-ness - where did that guy get an RPG from.
Reminds me of Anchorman

"Brick - where'd you get a hand grenade from?"
"I don't know."
