How does a tiger cross a fence?

06/03/2013 18:36:58 world/Africa_2012/tiger_fence Should tigers be fenced in?

March 2013. There has recently been a debate about fencing some tiger reserves in India - Is it good or bad for wildlife? Whatever the debate, if the fences are no good, the debate is academic.

This tiger was seen and photographed leaping the fence that was built around part of Bandhavgarh National Park. It is thought that some tigers have been injured while negotiating this fence. The photos were sent to us by Satyendra Tiwari of Skay's Camp, prompted by the images we published last week of a lynx and kitten passing through a wildlife fence very easily.

In Africa, a debate has just started about the benefits of fencing in some lion populations for their own protection. A recent study seems to show that lions have a better future if separated from humans by fences - The fence keeps humans out of lion habitat, and vice versa, reducing conflict between the species.

The tiger found the fence little deterrent, though some tigers have apparently been injured when negotiating such fences.

That is not a tiger-proof fence

To keep a tiger in a certain area, you need a high electric fence. The question, if fences can help protecting wildlife is complex but it is not academic. Electric fences are of course expensive and need energy which can be provided by solar panels.

People often feel, that deer, tigers and lions beyond fences are not really wild. That is not true, if the fenced area is large enough and the animals can live from the resources they find within the reserve. People in western countries might have to ask themselves, if they would like to live close to a 200 kg cat or if they would prefer a fence around the National Parks. Most of the National Parks in India are in fact already islands in a tiger-free land.
Deer and wild boar (the main prey species of the tiger) might also prefer fences, which prevent people from bringing their livestock into the reserve.
