What does the fence for the protection against wolves look like?

The electric fence consists of a corresponding energy source, an impulse generator, electricity conducting wires fixed to wooden or plastic posts by means of special insulators and metal grounding rods. The simplest energy source is a 12 V car battery that may be recharged by means of a battery charger (adapter), by connecting to the car or by solar panels.

The impulse generator generates electric impulses of at least 5,000 to 10,000 V a second.

The fence for the protection of wolf attacks should consist of at least 5 wires. The fence gates are made of the same electricity conducting wire and metal springs - one for each fence wire. In this place the gate is easily opened by insulated hand grips. Posts holding the fence may be wooden or originally plastic and about 1.6 m high. The electricity conducting wire is fixed to special plastic brackets - insulators that make it possible to move and stretch them. The wire spacing must be 20-30 cm, with the lower pair closer to each other than others. The lower wire must be 20 cm above the ground at the most. The span between posts must be 5-10 m, depending on the ground configuration. Once placed, the wires must not touch the grass and bushes, because the mains voltage may be lost. If placed properly, the fence wire may be several kilometres long. Grounding is of a decisive importance for a good operation of the fence. For this purpose it is necessary to drive an iron rod into the ground for at least 1 m. A good grounding makes a half of the success of the electric fence operation.
