Modulació de la resposta d'estrès un ungulats salvatges capturats mitjançant xarxa vertical

Project Details

Description

The scope of this research project is the assessment of haloperidol and azaperone, two short-acting tranquilizers, to modulate stress response in three different species of wild ungulates (roe deer, Southern chamois and Spanish ibex) when captured by means of drive-nets. The main objectives are:1. Assessing the use of haloperidol and azaperone to modulate stress response in roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) when captured by means of drive-nets.2. Assessing the use of haloperidol and azaperone to modulate stress response in Southern chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica) when captured by means of drive-nets.3. Assessing the use of haloperidol and azaperone to modulate stress response in Spanish ibex (Capra pyrenaica) when captured by means of drive-nets.4. Establishing drive-nets performance to capture roe deer, Southern chamois and Spanish ibex in our environment. To our knowledge, no data about the use of haloperidol and azaperone in none of the three species are available in literature. Only personal communications of some researchers have been found, with contradictory results and no scientific study. That is the reason of the proposal of this research project. Results of the research project may be useful to improve roe deer, Southern chamois and Spanish ibex population management, mainly in all the aspects related to their capture and ulterior handling. These species are captured with increasing frequency nowadays, and monitoring stress procuring animal welfare needs to be a paramount objective to any people carrying out these operations.
