A friend back in Connecticut had a vegetable garden surrounded by an 
electric fence. When the corn was nearly ripe they would hear shrieking 
in the night. Turned out that the raccoon would sit outside the fence 
and scream, nerving himself up to swarm over the fence. Once inside he 
would eat the corn. Then scream his way back out again.

Turkeys, ungainly as they look, do fly. They even spend the night 
roosting up in trees.

Judy in New Jersey where this overcast morning looks like we'll get some

I am very fond of electric fencing as it has no side effects and consumes very little energy. But it needs some maintenance like removal of fallen branches or weeds touching the wires.
