Basically this fence is very short... The land is about 2.2 acres and from what others have told me there will be lots of predators such as raccoons, skunks, foxes, coyotes, bears, hawks, not what I'm used too. Seems like I might have to invest in getting a rifle or some type of gun too. Or a large farm dog. The fence looks like those metal fences that line huge properties with acreage, just without the barbed wire and the "no trespassing" signs. It has what looks like hardware cloth instead of the chain link design. I'm used to my 6 ft wooden backyard fence so this is totally new to me. The fence looks like it's only 4 feet high so any critter can easily get through it. Would hot wire stop most animals? Where I live currently there are no wilderness animals like raccoons, a neighbor's dog is as worse as a predator can get. We're gonna have to do a lot of work on making predator proof pens and coops, but I'd like at least something to maybe deter predators. I don't think a lot of people have poultry out where the property is, or maybe not as many as I do, so I think it would be visited quite a bit by predators because it's new to them. Any info/advice would be appreciated.
