I see. Well IceFire talked about carrying a handgun when out in the yard for use against dangerous critters and that does make sense. I was just wondering the effectiveness of a fence and if there is any sort of fence that is good at keeping all dangerous animals out.
Fences are better for keeping domestic animals I (with limited effectiveness, depending on the animal) than for keeping dangerous critters out. Most of the dangerous ones will fid a way over, under, or through a fence given proper motivation. Snakes can (and DO) tunnel, so they’ll go under, or if the fence is not solid, they’ll go through the gaps in the fence. Large cats (mountain lions, jaguars–we DO have them in some areas of the country, lynx, bobcats, etc.) will jump OVER the fence. Depending on fence height, coyotes will go over or under. Bears will just smash THROUGH a fence. Still, while it won’t STOP them if they are determined, it probably WILL slow them down, at least a little, and is better than no fence at all.
