Abstract

We immobilized 51 free-ranging gray wolves (Canis lupus) with a combination of tiletamine hydrochloride and zolazepam hydrochloride. Effective initial dose was 400 mg (x̄ = 10.4 ± 0.6 [SE] mg/kg of body mass). Mean induction and recovery times were 7.2 ± 1.4 minutes and 144 ± 35 minutes, respectively. We did not observe adverse effects.
