In view of the alarmingly high losses which frequently occur as a result of capture myopathy during translocation of game animals, it was decided to investigate the main physiological and biochemical changes which occur during capture stress. In a series of experiments with eight springbok which were captured in drop nets, it was shown that a marked increase in rectal temperature, cardiac rate and respiration rate occured.
