    There is reported to be a mother brown bear and two cubs in our neighborhood. I have not seen them, but I am glad I got my electric fence around my bee yard repaired.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

    Will an electric fence actually stop a bear?

    Given the number of pieces said steak is likely to be in, i'll pass.

    Bears don't seem to like electric shock. Who would have guessed?

    Just like bulls and cows, an electric fence will not stop a charging animal, but most large animals move rather slowly and deliberately when checking out new territory.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    Not me - I've seen video's of bears getting into things that would have stopped most superheroes.

    Well, of course not - you have to take away their credit cards for that!

    Thanks for the answers, guys!

    But I DO have one story....

    We had one particularly stubborn bull who, even if the electric fence were operating, would just kinda mosey over to it, lean into it with his shoulder, and just keep pressing til the barbed wire strands broke, then walk right into the corn field.

    I often wondered if he thought "yeah, it hurts like the dickens, but I am NOT going to let you win!"

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    Having been bitten by electric fences on occasion I can say it does not feel real nice.
