There is a short video (available on-line) that shows the ELECTRIC BEAR FENCE in use, with real bears!

Here's the link:

The film is on the NOLS web-site. The school has been doing a lot of testing of this new design.

It's pretty cool.

The prices on some of the units are surprising. Battery operated fence chargers are nothing new to farmers and ranchers. You can get a 1.76 pound unit for $39 that will charge up to a MILE of fence and nearly 700 feet of tape-style wire for $18 (see http://www.horse.com/products/sku-BXW12.html for an example). All that you need from there are three trees or sticks, some antenna wire insulators from Radio Shack (or the feed store) and some light line to tie the insulators to the trees/sticks.

I would love to see a raccoon nose a fence. Muhahahahaha!
