Default Fox 0 hot wire fence 1

He went after a bird that was sitting on the hot wire.
evidently did not know about getting grounded.

At first I thought it was a coyote but now it seems it is in fact a VERY large fox.

Never even knew what him. Looks like he's been hanging there awhile!

Do you have some kind of alarm on the hotwire that lets you know it's discharging? I mean, it's a coyote, but I'd be more worried if it were a pet or something I cared about in the wire.

Maybe barbra streisand or maxine waters.


I used lower case for their names since they are DB's.

I use a hot wire to protect my chickens from predators. If you use a charger with a continuos charge verses one that pulses, you'd be amazed at what it will kill.

I have hit mine when it was misting rain with a wet pair of tennis shoes on. My vision went white, jaw clamped shut and that was just a brush across my arm. Can't imagine what it would be like if I grabbed it and closed my hand on it.

My fence is set much closer to the ground and net wire fencing, so even a small animal like a mink could hit the wire. I have killed birds, mice, rats, snakes, mink, and squirrels.

Don't mistake this for bragging, but my chickens have not suffered a successful attack in the 3 years they have been protected by the hot wire. Before the hot wire, it was a never ending contest, the coons or mink would get in, kill some birds. Next day I would haul the carcasses off and work on fence. It would go a few days maybe a week, they'd find another way in. On and on and on. Hot wire cured that problem.

I have had 1 dog that evidently didn't care that the fence was shocking him. He would get out of his yard, come over to my place, and make a run at the chickens. Danged thing would be yelping and barking, but never gave up. Repeated trips to the nieghbor did not get any relief. So I turn to SSS, problem solved.

So is this just a regular electric fence? As is used for cattle/horses? I've used them to keep a standard poodle from climbing my fencing, and touching it will jolt you but not to the extent you've described. I've never seen it kill anything. The dogs, after touching it, sit in the center of the yard for hours, and won't challenge the fence again for months.

I suspect what happened is that the varmit got entangled in the fence and died of exhaustion. An ag fence puts out 6-8 joules of juice and muscle contraction will do you end as the ag fence puslates 6-9 thousand dc volts and thats what usually does and critter or human for that matter end. I have installed miles of the stuff for security stuff. granted my numbers may be off a little but thats essentially what happened.
