Acceptable handling of problem or nuisance animals has been a concern of the general public and many local, state, and federal agencies. In the past, handling of these animals involved physical restraining techniques. These techniques exposed not only the "restrainer" but the "restrainee" to potential physical damage. Equipment utilizing Sucostrin as the immobilizing agent was developed to minimize these hazards.
