13 Blue wildebeest were successfully captured with a standard dose of 2,5 mg etorphine hcl and 20 mg triflupromazine hcl. The narcotic/ tranquillizer mixture was prepared prior to the capture operation thus eliminating the mixing of ""drug-cocktails"" in the field. Diprenorphine hcl effectiveIy antagonised the narcotic effects of etorphine hcl at a ratio of 1:1.
