    I hunt a farm that uses electric fences...you only have to be reminded once a season to only handle them at the insulators AND to use your light in the dark when nearing the fence row. YOW!

    I can only imagine the “whew” feeling he’s going to have when he does that behavior again and doesn’t get shocked.

    That hog is a crybaby. I used to do a job where I had to cross electric fences all the time. I used a wooden pole to bend the wires down so I could straddle across. I lost track of how many times I got zapped in the nuts. It really wasn't that bad. :confused:

    I was walking along a fence line in the woods in Germany with my kids many years ago. My son, about 12 at the time, touched the fence, turned around a kicked my daughter as hard as he could in the rear end. I asked him why he did that and he said she'd just done it to him. Took us a minute to figure out that he'd received a good shock from the fence and thought his sister had kicked him.

    Buddy had an Arab stud that used to get out all the time . We electrified his pasture , He stood there and watched us do it . When we were done and turned it on He walked over and pissed on it as a sign of contempt . We laughed like hell when he got knocked on his ass . :lol:

    We used to have an electric fence around our house in the country. It was more to keep the animals out of the yard than anything.

    But I do remember one time telling my little brother I bet he could not wizz over the fence. He takes the challenge and sure enough shoots right over the top line. He looks at me and yells, "see I told you I could do it!" smiling ear to ear as he had gotten something over on his big brother. Then his stream started to lose some steam and the stream came into contact with the wire. He jumped so high and almost hit me with the stream.

    He ran away and told my Mom. I got some physical discipline for that!

    If they're going to get up to monkey business, they should watch the experts.

    I did a bunch of field testing a medical device for cattle. As the cows are fed through a chute for medical processing, the stress can be so great that every once in awhile a cow will collapse from heart stoppage, so there is always an electric prod nearby that you jab the cow with to get their heart going again. An amazing thing to watch. The cow recovers and stands back up very quickly .... ummm .... most of the time.:(

    That episode of Ren and Stimpy was the first thing that came to mind. Then I saw the pigs and it ruined it.

    As a youngster, my cousins and I used to cross the fence line of my uncle's farm to sneak into the county fairgrounds right next door. We were crawling under the electric fence and I raised up too early and touched the back of my head to the wire. Felt like someone belted me with a baseball bat. I had a pretty serious headache afterwards as I recall.

    Never try stepping over an electric fence where the ground is swampy. You'll find that when you are straddling it your legs suddenly get shorter and jeans are not a good insulator.
