Perimeter around tents? 
Modified By josh54  on 6/13/2011 11:14:43 AM)
This pic from google earth is in an area I frequently hike in. I've never seen someone put something like this around their tents before.

Is this supposed to keep animals out or something?

It would appear to be intended to deter animals. If it is electrified, the electrical source is not immediately apparent, but if it isn't electrified, it is guaranteed to be useless. Probably going to cause some terrible cursing if somebody need to leave the tent in the night to stumble to the bathroom.

People do all kind of strange things. Hard to say if this scheme was someone's personal brainstorm, or if they were the victims of an overzealous salesperson.

That's for sure

I used to wonder around that area a lot in the `80s. I don't think there was a single bear left around there back then. I know there weren't many. Are there any now?

I would think claymore mines would do a better job with less fuss, just be really really careful...
