Electric Wire blocking track

A recent comment from Rob mentioned:

a single strand of #8 fencing wire (electrified) stretched across the access road just where The Wasp starts.

I rode past yesterday and saw that the wire is on the ground, but didn't touch to see if it is still electrified. The wire runs down the middle of Wasp, making the first section impassable.

It looks to me that the wire was intended to keep cattle inside the RAT area - the fences on the paddocks have been removed so they could end up wandering around the campus.

I didn't see any animals on my ride this time, but there's lots of cow shit over a large area.

I also haven't been able to find out how the cows get on to the track - any info on this would be appreciated.
