I had a friend years ago who had an old ford with stainless hubcaps. When ever a dog cocked his leg on one it left a yellow stain that had to be polished off. He was getting #@&* off !! One night he wired the car to an electric fence unit. A couple of times during the night he was woken by the sound of a dog yelping. After that he no longer had the problem.

Why do dogs want to mark car wheels with their nasty urine!?
I did a similar thing with an XKE I owned many years ago. Dog pee on REAL wire spokes is a terrible thing
I used a small neon sign transformer with a reduced amperage fuse in the primary, and the return terminal connected to a fence post nearby for grounding. it would really make you jump if you touched the car.
I remember hearing a dog cry out one evening and I went out to find a little pee on the pavement around the wheel and no dog!

Bring that to this part of Texas, and the antlers would get stolen!

Thanks, I found them and brought them home for my 4 yr old to see how antlers grow and couldn't pass up the photo op. I bet there is an MB running around in the southwest with a pair of longhorns strapped to it somewhere!

Life is good. Have a great day.

Or end up with a couple of 30-30 holes in the front fenders.

A couple of reasons not to drive this on opening day of deer season:
1. It's got antlers, you'll get shot.
2. It's too damn noisey, it'll scare the deer, you'll got shot.
