Keep in mind that these are the injuries that have been reported by the news and were available to view with a simple Google search. Many injuries and even deaths go unreported. There is no database with injuries and deaths listed in one location. Kade's Krusaders has been told by conservation officers that fence companies stated they would continue to sell and install dangerous fence styles unless they were made to stop via laws. Fence companies do not provide warnings or disclosures to consumers. Many even market open picket fences as a safe option for playgrounds, homes with children, pools, and other high traffic children, family, wildlife, and pet areas. This is despite so much evidence and many voices around the world advocating for change!
