Wild boar behaviour during live-trap capture in a corral-style trap
Last changed: 15 January 2021
A research group at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, National Veterinary Institute and Uppsala University have studied the behaviour of wild boar captured in a trap, for improved animal welfare evaluation of live-trapping. The results show that behavioural assessment can detect capture-related stress and the researchers emphasize the inclusion of behavioural data assessment for the testing of new trap constructions before approval.
