When most people talk about fences and wildlife, they’re usually talking about how to keep the wildlife away. After all, wild animals can be a real nuisance for any farmer or homesteader. They bother your animals, eat your plants, and sometimes do real damage to your fence.
But have you ever considered that your fence might do real damage to the animals?
If you live somewhere with a lot of wildlife, those animals are bound to encounter your fence sooner or later. Too often, animals find themselves trapped or seriously injured by farm fencing — and sometimes, those injuries can be fatal.
