In the wild an animal can be sent into a panic by an anesthetic shot, and will attempt to flee. It is especially important that an animal in a state of anesthesia be cared for – and not be let out of sight.
A transponder – carrying injection syringe is put to good use in the case of the anesthesia of flighty animals or for a anesthetization attempt in rocky or impassible terrain. After being attached to the animal with a cannule with a barb, the sender, through the help of a receiver, can make the tracking and location of the animal possible.
With the help of a sender, this leopard could be found and taken care of only a short time after the shot was administered.
