Hey!
I live in zone 3b, with heavy frost heaving. Everyone's fences around me are pushed crooked.

I want to do a high-tensile electric fence as my perimeter to keep livestock in, but mainly keep wolves, bear and coyotes out.

The preferred method for fence corners in my area is by encircling a cattle panel Are tying with heavy duty wire and then filling with large rocks. (I have a lot of large rocks).

I like this idea, but only have concern for making the fence corners themselves electrified so that predators don't just climb the gabions.

I can envision a good way to connect high tensile to it to extend a side of the property, but I need some good ideas for making the corners/gabions electrified.

See attached photo as an example.

Thanks.

Andre, since it has been several years, how did the gabion work out for you?

To me, It looks like a massive fortress that is definitely unmoveable.
