Yikes! Amazing picture. Perhaps they need one of those little yellow stickers that warns of electric snow melting equipment in use on premises  :o  -F

They clearly should have used a heavier gauge fence.  Not to code!

Holy mother of geezus - the ground around that thing must be energized in all kinds of strange ways.  Looks like the outside of one of Tesla's labs.
