With a taught single (or double) wire, this is never an issue. They touch, they scream. Maybe the potbellies won't have as much fur, and this won't be a problem.

Steve Hoskins wrote:I will also point out that the net (that i bought) is about $1 per foot and the wire cost is less than 3 pennies per foot (plus ropes to tie to trees or poles). The wire pieces can also be melted down into something useable later.
