oa Madoqua - The immobilisation of wildebeest Connochaetes taurinus with etorphine and the use of diprenorphine as an etorphine antagonist

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.
