I used to have a customer who were in the forestry business.  They had
a hundred miles or so of railroad down South that went from one of
their sawmills to places that had lots of trees, and ran some telecom
cables along them.   Where they had bridges, the cables would hang
underneath the bridges.  They had some cable problems during the rainy
season, due to wetness, but they also ran into problems during hunting
season with guys named Bubba who'd shoot at birds on their cables
(presumably when they were taking a break from their day job of
driving backhoes...)
