    It is unbelievable that high voltage is used as a deterrent instead of low voltage with low amperage. What knowledge does wild life officers have these days? This is also the result of human association with wild animals; there are vendors along the fence at the Uda Walawe sanctuary selling bananas to tourist to feed wild elephants selfishly profiteering from it and endangering the life of the elephants.

    How could this happen, why a high voltage fence? An electric fence energizer converts mains or battery power into a high voltage pulse. The energizer releases this pulse on to an insulated fence line about once every second. The pulse itself is only around 150 microseconds long. An electric fence is a psychological barrier rather than a physical one so the animal must be educated to respect the fence. The pain that an animal feels is short lived and does not physically harm the animal.
