Capturing and handling of the Himalayan musk deer


, : Capturing and handling of the Himalayan musk deer. Wildlife Society Bulletin 19(4): 397-399

In 45 attempts, using a drive-net technique, 25 successful captures were made of 16 different Himalayan musk deer (Moschus chrysogaster leucogaster). Locally manufactured nets were cost-effective. A combination of xylazine (Rompun) at 1.5 mg/kg body wt and ketamine hydrochloride (Vetalar) at 4.5 mg/kg effectively immobilized the deer with no observable adverse effect. Average induction and recovery times were 3.68 and 40.54 min, respectively.
