Giraffe Capture

Most giraffe captures are done by immobilization. After immobilization a giraffe is blindfolded, its ears are blocked with cotton wool and a set of ropes and a halter is attached to the animal. The veterinarian on site will then reverse the immobilizing drug completely and the animal will be guided with the ropes onto the recovery trailer from where it will be cross-loaded onto a specialized giraffe transport trailer.
