Would be lumberjack fells tower

More than 7,000 people throughout southwestern Ontario had their Internet connection abruptly shut off this weekend after someone cut down a steel communications tower in Wellington County. At around 2 a.m. Saturday after someone cut the base of a 120-foot tower. Servers and other gear that was located at an equipment shelter attached to the tower were also destroyed as the tower collapsed. Damage to the tower is estimated at $100,000.

Thanks to VA3QV for the story. Let us hope the idiot is caught before they kill someone.
