Weasels electrocuted by particle accelerator honored in exhibit

The Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, has had its share of weasel problems. You may remember when, last April, the $7 billion machine was knocked out by a stone marten chewing a wire, sending the European physics group, CERN, scrambling to fix it. That marten is no more, but now an unusual exhibition (not pictured) in the Netherlands will be honoring the weasels that have met their ends tangling with the famous collider, Live Science reports. A stuffed "CERN 'weasel' 2" is the newest addition to the exhibit, which seeks to demonstrate the tragedies that can result “when man and beast collide.”
