  • Re: electric fence
  • That was funny.
    When I was 12 at my uncles dairy I was dared to touch the fence. Of course I did, but nothing happened. Then again... nothing. Held on to it and nothing. Then my cousin touched me and we both got zapped. I was wearing tennis shoes and did not ground.Fence chargers are suppose to pulse so you don't get locked onto one if you grab it. It still hurts like hell. but you should not get locked on to it like house current would.
