Long shot, kick the bucket.

The effects of the heatwave which affected Ibiza in June, July, and August, are still being felt.

The telephone lines of a dozen neighbours in the San Lorenzo area were left dead to the world for a whole weekend after a careless hunter missed his target and instead hit overhead telephone cables.

The neighbours believe that the hunter was either firing his gun at a bird in flight and quite by chance hit the cable, or more than likely, a bird was actually sitting on the cable and the hunter's near miss hit the line.

Reports that a rabbit leapt 30 metres into the air to cause the accident have been dismissed as a flight of fantasy.
