      Another emotionally satisfying solution. The problem is that “electricity” would take the form of “cattle wire” connected to a 12-vold battery. It tingles more than grills, and I’ve heard that raccoons don’t mind a midnight tingle every now and then. Getting smoke would require household current, making it too dangerous. Meanwhile, it looks like the current palisade is working.
