OK, Leah-Ann, but I beg to differ. The typical little electric fence boxes that we used on the farm did not pack that kind of punch. We would routinely bump into them while working with just a nip like a static shock. They did pulse about every 3 seconds. If a cow touched them (we bent beer cans around the wire to interest the cows) with their nose, they would just get a mild shock for a short duration. That snopes thing looks more like something they would have around a high security area.
