You may be wondering if cougars are truly a cause for concern in Metro Vancouver. In some cases, the answer is yes.
In Greater Vancouver, it's not uncommon to hear about sightings in municipalities, particularly along the North Shore Mountains and the Fraser Valley. The Fraser Valley in particular is home to many farmers and ranchers with animals livestock, which can present a tempting target to the big cats!
As impressive predators, cougars can easily leap over a 10-foot high fence, so a full chain-link fencing enclosure is recommended to keep smaller livestock and pets safe. It's also a good idea to add fencing around yards and play areas as children can also be at risk for attacks.
Full chain-link enclosures are ideal for securing these areas. A tarp can even provide added protection from rain and snow. However, the blog notes that many municipalities around Vancouver have restrictions regarding fences that you should be aware of. Be sure to check your municipal bylaws to ensure compliance before you start.
There are plenty of unfortunate stories about pets that have disappeared due to suspected cougar attacks throughout North Vancouver, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam, Port Moody, and other Greater Vancouver communities.
Many of these accidents are preventable. A chain-link fence can help promote safety and prevent injury-for both people and wildlife. Contact QS Fencing to learn more about innovative fencing solutions that meet your particular needs. We'll even put together a free quote.
