Mass Capture

MANDATE

To tender out all large mass captures on protected areas for sound species supplementation as well as game reductions on these areas.

This process involves building a funnel into which the animals are chased using a helicopter. A number of curtains are used to close the funnel behind the animals who are progressing towards the truck. The funnel narrows to a point where the last few meters before the loading ramp up onto the truck is built with steel sections to re inforce the high pressure zone where the animals are negotiated into.

Once onto the trucks they are split into family groups or moved into compartments with the desired number of individuals and transported to their new destination. The animals are injected with a tranquilizer to minimize and stress experienced during the capture and transport process.
