Lightroom, how can wire fencing be removed?

With practice I'm getting mostly acceptable results at removing bulk objects from an image (there were 7 fence posts in the original image)  but wire fencing has me stumped. Any suggestions?

You could simply crop it out... Otherwise I would use Photoshop for this.

Spot Removal tool tip (LR): click where the wire starts. It will pick a spot to replace it, but ignore the spot it selects, you will select a new spot. Hold down the SHIFT key and click on the end of the wire! Now that becomes the new selected spot, leading from the start to the end! You may move the original or replacement areas to better cover the wire.

This works best on straight lines, so if your wire curves try several straight line segments.
