Definitely don't attempt to electrocute him. You'll damage the meat. Electricity follows moisture and burns flesh. You'll ruin a lot of meat that way, and no telling if you will survive the attempt.
Our mobile butcher shoots the hog with a .22 rifle, then sticks the jugular & hoists it up by the back legs with a winch to bleed out. Quick and clean.
