Protect Pets From Wildlife
Posted on August 22 2018
Just this week in Arizona, there was a dog named Bullet that barely survived a wildlife attack when the wild animal appeared in the backyard through an unlocked gate to kill the dog. Based on the bite marks, the dog was either attacked by a coyote, bobcat or mountain lion, says pet doctors.
To protect pets in the yard, it's encouraged to install wildlife fencing that is at least 6 feet high to prevent coyote and bobcat attacks. Deer can jump over 7 feet; but they typically will not do so unless they are chased by a predatory animal such as a bear or wolf. This is why deer fencing that is at least 7.5 to 8' feet high is appropriate.
