Becky's wings healing fast

Barbed wire fences damage flying-fox wings

Good news for Becky the Black Flying-fox. She will be released very soon as holes in membrane heal incredibly quickly all by themselves.

Wing membrane is the fastest healing tissue in the animal kingdom and most of these types of injuries are sustained on barbed wire fences. We really need to explain to people that barbed wire fences are NOT security fences. They are so easily breached but they are a major contributor to the suffering and death of so many nocturnal wildlife species. Give barbed wire the flick and embrace wildlife friendly fencing. You can have security without maiming and torturing our nocturnal wildlife.
