Public footpath enclosed by farm animal's electric fence

I was walking behind Penkridge Lake Farm today following the yellow footpath arrows and came across an area immediately behind the farm where the path is enclosed by an electrical fence. This necessitates going through a metal gate and whilst I was untieing the cord holding the gate I received an electric shock as the electrical fence was apparently also attached to the gate! There were no warning signs of any sort and I feel this could be quite dangerous for a child or similar.
