I have an electric fence that I use to try to keep ILLEGAL aliens off my property. It works to the extent that they do not cross where the fence is but go around it to my gate and cross. To date no one has been killed; I have yet to find any bodies, anyway.

Looks like a good arrangement, but I reckon your fence is plugged into a livestock charger and not directly into a 120-volt household outlet or something like that. ;-)

Electric livestock fences run several thousand volts and very low amperage unless unintentionally grounded somewhere.

Electric fence is good for keeping bears out, too, BTW (on the Rockies). ...fence that’s more permanent with less maintenance for livestock (nonelectric, high tensile).
