It's as though the implication though is that a dog will give indications of a faulty light .. or an electrical problem. That's what I found fascinating.

We've had a bunch of those charged manhole covers in Boston, and a few smaller dogs have died. The company (in this case NStar) wants to know about them for a number of reasons, including a child who was affected (it was a small child going barefoot) and I think there was a case in Las Vegas where a tourist died.

But yes, if a dog yelps and moves away after touching a manhole cover or an electrical pole, calling the company might save a life. It could be a dog, it could be a child, it could be you. It's nice to know that one company is being proactive about this, and is asking for help.
