    Will this still be valid after "brexit" or will I need a passport to obtain "Electrified strained eire" ? :p

    Contacted a live wire with the back of my neck. Didn't like that much. No signs and it looked like it was fixed around a tree. High up above a retained bank and obviously aimed at stopping kids escaping the campsite into the field. Didn't work too well but kids often got caught out once before they got a work around. Almost 40 years ago.

    You wouldn't (and shouldn't) get away with that now! Signs are mandatory in public access areas

    My terrier once sniffed at the new chickens through an electric fence net and was unpleasantly surprised. The chickens went on to become full-monty free-range after a couple of weeks and roamed freely everywhere, even in the house on occasion.

    The terrier used to chase pheasants when they wandered into his domain, but I don't think that he ever even looked at a chicken again in all his years.
