Large Animal Rescue

Large Animal Rescue

Large animal rescue involves the disentrapment or disentanglement of large animals, such as horses and other livestock, from an environment. Rescuers learn basic animal behavior and safety techniques for working around all types of animals and livestock during the formal training course. Specialized equipment is used to assist with moving, lifting or rotating large animals in an attempt to free them from whatever situation they are in. Due to the abundance of large animals in the Sandoval County region, this type of incident is fairly common.
