Euthanasia & Carcass Disposal: Methods & Pitfalls

Instructor: Stephen Vantassel

This topic, while not often talked about, is something that everyone in wildlife control has to deal with. It is one of those unmentionables, but we need to talk about it in detail because it’s something you’re going to need to encounter if you’re going to be a full-fledged wildlife control operator. This course will cover methods for euthanizing animals, ways to dispose of the deceased animal, and pitfalls to avoid to maintain public relations and appearance.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Define humane dispatch.
  • Discuss options available for euthanizing an animal.
  • Describe the various types of lethal sets available and when best to use each one.
