Capture and immobilization of African wolves (Canis lupaster) in the Ethiopian Highlands

Abstract:

We captured 14 individual African wolves (Canis lupaster) a total of 16 times in the Ethiopian Highlands in April 2015 and March 2016 by using rubber-lined foothold traps and immobilized them with dexmedetomidine-ketamine.
