Ah hah now I know the culprit

This is a photo of the last 6-8 of my corn cob husks discarded underneath a fence post - so the culprit must be a possum. Putting up a strand of barb wire hasn't slowed it down at all. I did some research and possum are pretty hard to deter from your garden. One possibility is to put a floppy extension on the fence - the possum can climb up easily but with its weight the top of the fence flops down and the possum falls off. I can also put tin sheets around the trees its using.
