Black-footed Capture Technique

"Jason Herrick pulls Alex Sliwa from a den, when he had injected a BFC. Alex was stuck there." A. Sliwa

Once researchers have identified a Black-footed cat via spot lamp searching, the next step is to capture it for radio-collaring. On occasion, the cats would find a den system dug by an aardvark, ground squirrel or springhare and escape into it. They would be either captured by exposing them after digging or lost to the capture team by escaping deep into the den system.
