What is an electric fence shock?
When a person or animal is shocked by an electric fence the person or body is acting as a switch between the live and earth part of the fence creating a complete circuit. When the electrons are able to flow from the fence and thorough the body of the animal, they travel over the muscles making them sharply contract, giving the impression of a whack or jolt. Whilst most uncomfortable for the body in question. An electric fence shock is non harmful, with no lasting side effects apart from the mentality change toward the fence boundary or live wire.
