Death and Fines

Caution, touching wires causes instant death! $500 fine
At Dickinson Cattle Co, and the Longhorn Store thousands of people drop in from I-70 and purchase Texas Longhorn Beef, or bounce the pastures on the ranch tour bus' during the Summer. But, there is a problem.
Deer and cattle scratch against the black board fences. In order not to replace and repair fences a single electric wire is placed on the "cow" side of the fence. It causes livestock to be "respectful," yet there is absolutely no such respect from the tourists. They are warned, encouraged and begged not to touch the electric wires. They won't read the signs. These signs have been a little helpful, but the problem is still unending.
The problem is --- guests to the ranch get so engrossed looking at the big horned cattle they tend to lean toward the fences, whereby certain projectile-effect body parts make direct contact, and zaaaooowwweee!
It is never the electrocuted one's fault. Some doubt instant death and want to "test the current." One guest was warned while taking a photo not to touch the wire, then leaned forward and his metal camera touched, delivering the full current a direct hit on his nose. We don't know what to do?
It is important for the ranch to provide high quality BETTER THAN ORGANIC beef to red meat lovers. People like to purchase great breeding stock to start or increase their herds. What can we do? We like our clients --- and want them to live a healthy long life.
Do you think "INSTANT DEATH" does not sound serious enough? Do you think we have over stated the problem? What about the fine? Does it need to be higher priced, or should we offer a two-for-one rate of $899 for two recapitulating shocks?
When visiting the ranch be aware of the problem. Don't be afraid to purchase healthy lean beef or your next great champion herd sire, just because of this electric contrivance. We really don't want anyone to have a "shocking" experience. And --- that is a jolting fact!
