About 11,000 homes and businesses in and around Truro were briefly without power on Friday afternoon after a crow flew into a transmission line.

A spokesperson for Nova Scotia Power said it was the second crow-related outage in the province on Friday.

The outage was initially attributed to "wildlife interference" on the utility's outage map.

Power was fully restored by 5 p.m.
