Glider's Untimely Death on a Barbed Wire Fence 23/06/13

Late Yesterday afternoon Brendon took some rubbish to the local tip and on the way home noticed this poor adult Sugar Glider on a barbed-wire fence at the front of a property.  Unfortunately the glider had allready died, but not very long ago.  The Glider was caught by one leg, and had we found it earlier; it could have been saved by an expert wildlife carer.  It was a very sad discovery and the first one that we have seen caught on a fence in this area.

It really highlights the dangers to wildlife for Barbed Wire Fences.  To find out more about Wildlife Friendly Fencing Please view this Website:


  1. That is sad and shocking to see such a beautiful animal having such a terrible death. I have only ever seen one of these many many years ago. At least your post teaches people about such things.

    1. Yes it was awfully sad Russell - Next time you are visiting Mick on the Downs, ask him to give us a call so you can come to our patch one night and see these beautiful creatures in the wild!
