浣熊遭万伏电击幸免遇难

2006-05-25 09:52CRI Online

Raccoon Survives Massive Electric Shock

A raccoon suffered an 11,000 volt electric shock when it scampered up a pylon in Cyprus but escaped with burns.

The nocturnal mammal triggered a two-hour power outage at the town of Aradippou in southeast Cyprus after it scaled the pylon. It was eventually captured with a net and has been impounded by vets as an illegal import.

"It suffered some burns which we treated and is now recovering ... it certainly has the will to live," Charalambos Kakoyiannis of the island's veterinary department said on Thursday.

Raccoons, a native of the Americas, were introduced to Europe last century but are alien to Cyprus and authorities said the animal, whose owner was unknown, was smuggled onto the island.


近日,塞浦路斯一头顽皮的浣熊在试图爬上一座搭载高压电线的铁塔时不幸遭到电击,但1.1万伏的高压电下却并未能夺去它的性命,只是将身体烧伤了几处而已。

据路透社5月18日报道,这次意外发生在塞浦路斯东南部的阿拉迪普镇。兽医说:“这头浣熊身上有几处地方被烧伤,经过我们的治疗现在已经开始恢复了。它的求生欲望的确很强。”

这头浣熊一向喜欢昼伏夜出、四处玩耍,它这次攀爬铁塔导致该镇的电力供应中断了2个小时。人们后来用网将其捕获并将它送到了动物园。浣熊原产于美洲地区,上个世纪被引入欧洲,但在塞浦路斯人眼中仍很陌生。

该国有关部门说,这头浣熊是被走私偷运入境的,其真正主人至今尚未找到。
