Urinating on an electric fence can cause electrocution

Electrocution from urination on an electric fence is highly unlikely though can be achieved at proper conditions. Close distance is the main factor, as the urine stream breaks up less at a close range, thus ensuring a direct line of current between ones body and the electrical source. Also a strong urine stream and higher output will much more likely cause electric shock and in rare cases even electrocution.
