Campaña de capturas en verano - Summer capture campaign
Durante las 31 noches de captura, además de zorros, fueron capturados otros animales que liberamos rápidamente y no sufrieron ningún daño.
Esperamos tener más suerte en la próxima sesión!
Gracias a Mar, Kiki, Nati, Juan y Kevin que colaboraron en esta primera etapa! Y también a la gente de la chacra y de INTA.
We finished the first gray fox captures campaign in the experimental farm of Patagones. The objective of the capture is to place radio collars on gray foxes in an area where the use of protective dogs is being implemented to mitigate the conflict between cattle and carnivores. Through the telemetric monitoring of them we will obtain a validation for the use of protective dogs as a plausible tool in the area. Only 3 individuals were captured but because they were small they were not able to carry a collar.
We used snares, modified leg traps and cage traps.
During the 31 nights of captures, in addition to the foxes we also captured other animals that we quickly released without any suffering or damage.
We hope to have better luck in the next campaign!
Thank to Mar, Kiki, Nati, Juan and Kevin, that contributed in this first stage! And also to all the people of the field and of INTA.
