The pictures of the fences that they had looked like really beefed up chicken wire around 3 feet tall completely surrouding their car. I think it was a researcher that worked at mount dana, or something like that.
Another thing to watch out for is squirrels. They also like to chew wiring (break lines too) and get into the air intakes / muffler.
