Yes I'll second that motion. When I lived in the mountains a guy up the
hollow from me had a section of land fenced off with an electric fish that he
kept hogs in. One hog seemed to be immune to the electric fence and kept
escaping. So he hooked up straight 220 volts to the fence knowing that escape
artist hog would give it try as soon as he left the area. We came back the
next day to find a dead hog! The 220 kept him from ever pushing his way under
the fence again! It's no joke, the hog at about 300# was fried. None of the
other hogs were hurt because they were afraid of the fence and wouldn't go
near it even with the regular voltage hooked up. God only knows what would
have happened if some innocent had touched the fence!
