Taken at the Morton Arboretum. I was wondering how strong of a current was running through this fence. A bird landed on it and answered my question...

hi archie - fyi: a high/ strong current could be passing, and the bird will be fine - "electrocution" occurs when the bird is 'grounded' - so if the bird had one foot on the wire, and another on the ground, you'd have fried chicken...

Very funny. Yes, you need to be grounded for the current to hurt you. BTW, I got zapped by a fence like this when I was hiking in Switzerland many years ago. I was leaning against it petting a cow. I still remember how that big zap felt to this day!
