Wallaby Damage Inside the Fence

​​​​Damage to fences is often caused by animals caught on the inside. Close gaps in the fence ASAP.  When building a wallaby fence plan shooting to reduce the wallaby population and to quickly remove wallabies caught inside the fence.​

Footer/apron is less effective against digging from the inside. If a hole is dug from the inside it can also let wallabies get in from outside.
