Depends on how it's used. For example, I would never use barbed wire. No exceptions. But electric wire/tape is NOT bad if used correctly. We have it lining our split rail fence. We also have 2 strings of it bordering one side of one of our back pastures. Now, if someone turned that hot tape shock level up 10 times what it's supposed to be at, and put 20 strands per side of a pasture, THAT is dangerous. Obviously I'm exaggerating, but you get the point. I don't know what sheep wire is so I won't expand on that
