I just got the following news via The Register:

Suicide squirrel knocks out Swiss TV

TV and radio were knocked out for a couple of hours in Switzerland on Sunday – after a squirrel got itself electrocuted. The trams stopped running too for a short time in Zurich, the venue for the squirrel-short circuit action

In the same article they refer to a Baz (from Basel!) article showing the “suicide squirrel” (Eichhoernchen). By the way, the german article doesn’t mention it really was suicide .. so that’s attributed to the UK boulevard press. The Register article concludes with a funny question

“So how many squirrels does it need to take out Switzerland?”
