Capture Care and Management of Wildlife

Author: La Grange
Format: Hardcover
Published: 2006

Game capture is still a relatively new science, with little published data on species’ requirements in terms of logistics and the level of stress with which they can cope. Knowledge has mostly been gained through field experience, which is often jealously guarded. Most books cover the subject briefly, presenting only a collective overview. By contrast, this book may be the first publication detailing current capture techniques and related animal behaviour.
