Default Strong barb wire

Nilgai are notorious for just walking through and breaking fences but guess this bull got stuck in the wrong way. Crazy how just being caught by the hoof like that made him meet his maker.

I see whitetail carcasses like this all the time and have even cut several deer out. That puts a tremendous amount of clamping force on their feed when the wire gets twisted like that.

Yup. Seen bunches of whitetail but never one of these guys.

As stated above, usually see it with back legs and old/poorly stretched fence. Like Ric Flair getting wrapped in the ropes. :-)

Needs to be replaced with Jameis Winston's "Let's be Charrong" barbed wire!

Looks like it misjudged the height and it could've very easily broke it's neck when it got slung over the top.
