I went to a zoo and took various photos of animals behind fences, the only problem I have is that when I take a shot of say a Lion behind a wire fence the camera focuses in on the fence and not the Lion behind the fence.
Is there anything I can do to solve this?

Maybe try to zoom in all the way at something not absured, then point it at your target. Or get close enough to the wire, so it cant lock onto the wire, shoot between the wire. Thats about all I know, unless your camera has the feature to turn off auto focus, and use manual focus.

Yep, bring the camera right up to the fence, and try and poke the lens through any gaps. But even if there's no gaps, if the fence is right against the lens, then the camera will be unlikely to focus on it by mistake.
