Default Snakes and fences

I had these pix sent me the other day. This snake is not the one that I have posted before. I believe the snake was dead when placed on the electrified fence.

Click on the thumbnails for a bigger pix...

I don't think it was already dead. It looks as though he managed to get only so far when he got shocked then because he felt like he was being attacked he went to strike at the offender and got hung up by his teeth on the fence wire. Now with nothing else he started squirming around and really got wrapped up in the wire and was finally electrocuted.
Now if the electric shock was strong enough to kill immediately then he was probably electrocuted and nerves reacting made him coil around the bottom wires. I have seen this happen with snakes a lot of times even when decapitated.

Looking at the snakes scuff marks on the full size pix it looks like he was alive. There must have been something wrong with the fence to kill something that big. I think they are only supposed to give you a 12 volt jolt... I will remember this next time I go near an electric fence.

Edit: typos

An electric fence is normally set to 20 to 50 thousand volts, very low amperage , to keep horses and other animals away.

It's like the coil in your car to generate a spark, but the amperage is in milliamps.
