Game capture is a part of everyday life for game reserves and a vital part of conservation. Yet the process is potentially life threatening, particularly for the world’s tallest land mammal, a 20 ft giraffe. Working with these highly skittish creatures requires constant monitoring and the minimization of as much stress as possible. To do so veterinarians rely on the revolutionary tranquilising drug M99, which can bring a 2 000 pound giraffe down with ease. However, convincing the animal to walk willingly into a steel recovery box is still a feat to marvel at.
