Whether responding in the field to release an animal wrongly caught, guiding someone through it over the phone, or setting an animal free after translocation, this webinar will equip you with the basic steps to follow to not only successfully release, but to reduce stress and injury to the animal as well. How you approach and release an entrapped animal can greatly impact the level of stress and potential injury they experience.  This webinar will provide instruction for how to release wrongly trapped animals (both domestic and wild) from trap types that include foothold, snares, body-gripping, and box or cage style in a variety of situations and in the most humane and least stressful manner possible. This webinar will also discuss developing an awareness of how these traps work and what tools and personal protection and precautions might be necessary.
