Hi Monica,

Just as a test, you might try hanging an attractant along the electric fence wires, like tin can covers or aluminum foil strips or bits of wet corn ears or something. Any conductor that will make a raccoon stop & sniff before he barges in.

We had a portable pig fence years ago that worked real well, and used single-strand smooth electric wire. We laid down chunks of firewood for "posts" and just nailed the insulators on top of them. Just high enough to clear the weeds. The pigs would come rooting along, notice the tin can covers, sniff them and get a zap on their tender noses. Believe me, they learned fast! :)
