Is my invisible fence considered proper confinement?

Fences are meant not only to confine and keep in but also serve to keep others out. In general, if an animal is contained by an invisible fence that is not evident to a person or animal that strays within its boundaries, the owner is still liable if the enclosed animal attacks or bites. If you are using an invisible fence we strongly encourage you to post a notice.
