I wish I could have seen this one. The salty old troubleman I spent a year with during my apprenticeship told me of his encounter. On a call he suited up and had climbed the pole to check the service connections. Climbing into position he belted off and proceded when he saw something moving on the backside of the pole. Then again. Oscar had an angry squirrel poping it's head out from behind the pole an one side and then the other. Shaken a little he began slapping at it as it would appear ,first on one side then the other. I'm sure you have already got this, Oscar had belted off on the squirrel's tail. What a fight.
