The excessive use of antibiotics has led to the emergence of resistant bacteria, mainly from the Enterobacterales group, with high pathogenic/zoonotic potentials that can lead to problems in public health. The increasing presence in freshwater ecosystems highlights the need to evaluate potential sentinel species as risk indicators for both ecosyste...

Background Wild boar ( Sus scrofa ) populations are increasing worldwide and invading urban areas. Live-capture can improve the management of this challenge, maximising efficiency, allowing scientific studies and potentially improving animal welfare. This study assesses teleanaesthesia, drop-net, corral trap and cage trap to live-capture wild boar...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Capturing wild ungulates is a common population control tool that has been used for repopulation, relocation and scientific research. However, wild animal capturing often involves an underlying risk for both its welfare and its life. Stress brought forward by physical capture induces a series of quantifiable homeostatic, haematological and biochemi...
