Perphenazine enanthate was used to allow adaptation to captivity in 11 Pyrenean chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica). At the time of capture, all animals received 0.10 mg/kg of acepromazine maleate and 2.5 mg/kg of perphenazine enanthate intramuscularly. The effect was evaluated by means of three behaviors: alertness, defecation, and flight distance. The tranquilization and lack of fear of humans of all animals were determined and the usefulness of this long-acting tranquilizer for chamois adaptation to captivity was confirmed.
