We are live animal capture specialists.

We have the skills and experience for live animals, dangerous and wild animal capture and equine recovery. Here at Live Animal Capture, we humanely sedate wild and/or dangerous animals that may pose a threat to themselves, to humans or to their environment.

We work closely with vets, farmers, local authorities and national pet charities to help with capture and rescue of wild, agricultural and domestic animals. The welfare of the animal comes first.

We work internationally as our high levels of skills and experience are hard to find offering a 24 hour emergency call out service 7 days a week.

This huge elk stag had to be tranquilised and captured in order for it to have a full health check before being transported to another part of the country in order to introduce a fresh blood line into another head. This is just one of the tasks regularly and sucessfully carried out by Peter Boddy and The Live Animal Capture Team where Animal Welfare is always given paramount importance.
