Transport stress in roe deer ( Capreolus capreolus ): effect of a short-acting antipsychotic
| Contributor(s):: Montane, J., Marco, I., Lopez-Olvera, J., Manteca, X., Lavin, S.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a short-acting antipsychotic (acepromazine) on the stress response to transport in roe deer (C. capreolus). 21 roe deer in France were submitted to a 9-h road journey in order to reintroduce and restock this species into Catalonia (northeastern...
