    A snake found its way into a substation in Oklahoma City and knocked out power to 10,000 customers.

    When in doubt, blame the serpent.

    A sneaky snake slithered its way into a substation in Oklahoma City and managed to leave much of the city in the dark.

    According to a spokesman for Oklahoma Gas and Electric, the creature knocked out power to 10,000 customers for a few hours early on Thursday.

    The video of an Oregon boy's visit to the zoo is getting national attention. A lioness, behind glass at the Portland Zoo, swipes and unsuccessfully tries to bite 1-year-old Jack. Keepers at the zoo think the toddler's striped jacket may have tricked the big cat into thinking Jack was a small zebra. Luckily the glass kept Jack out of harm's way.

    News 9 reported that electric company workers who arrived at the Lone Oak substation in the city, they found the responsible reptile still at the scene.

    They got the lights back on by 4 a.m., the electric company said.
