I agree with a strand of hot wire offset to keep them off of it. I've seen 6 and 8 foot chainlink used. Solves the problem of them bending over it but they still push on it to grab tempting bits from the other side or if they paw with shoes get tangled up. Any fence comes with it's own set of safety issues. You just do the best you can with what you have and do what you can to make it as safe as possible. Sounds like y'all are making progress.
