a Cessna 170B, C-GMID, was departing a private grass strip for a local VFR flight. During the takeoff roll, the aircraft was unable to become airborne before the end of the 1,800 foot strip. The takeoff was rejected, but the aircraft continued through a wire fence at the end of the runway. The pilot added power in an attempt to avoid a slough beyond the fence.
