Fleas possibly. Not humans.

Electricity kills one of two ways. Burning and interfering with muscles.

12V DC isn't enough to interfere with muscles, and even sticking your tongue across a 12v battery pack terminals gives you no more than a nasty sort of taste. Certainly no blisters.

You need around 40-50V AC to start to be dangerous.
