Safe Handling and Restraint

The primary focus of this course is on the planning process that is necessary prior to a procedure that involves the capture and restraint of any animal. The class focuses on standard techniques for the safe handling and restraint of small mammals, birds, reptiles and invertebrates, less than 50 pounds in weight, that are most often encountered by animal care workers in their first few years of employment at a zoological facility. The goal for this class is for the learner to come to understand the institution’s policies, protocols, procedures and the planning process associated with all animal restraint procedures.
