This session will provide a foundation for animal capture and handling in the field. We will demonstrate commonly accessible and available commercial handling and capture equipment utilizing techniques and approaches that can be applied to domestic, unsocialized and wild animals. The bulk of the session will be comprised of interactive discussions accompanied by demonstrations using situations and questions from attendees. This will be a participant-driven session in which we will discuss and address the scenarios and challenges you encounter in the field.
