Talon Animal Catcher, the Humane Choice for Humankind
Global change scientists use system for studying wildlife
Norwegian and Russian are the latest agency to discover the versatility of Law Enforcement Technology’s latest product, the Talon Animal Catcher. The International Polar Year Initiative research project, composed of an international team of scientists, studies the effect of climate change on Arctic wildlife by tracking their migration and monitoring their ecosystem.
The International Polar Year Initiative field scientists were in need of a humane method of capturing wildlife for their tag-and-release program. Dr. Daniel Sherman, CEO of Advanced Weapons Technology, reports “Dr. Eva Fuglie, the team leader and world renowned biologist, was especially interested in capturing Ptarmigans in Arctic Norway, for her winter study of bird migration patterns — and the Talon was the perfect response” The Talon is a compact flashlight-size grappling device that shoots a 16 foot net for capturing wildlife and domestic animals.
The International Polar Year Initiative field scientists were in need of a humane method of small and delicate birds called Ptarmigans in Arctic Norway, for their winter study for their tag-and-release program— and the Talon was the perfect response.
CEO and Founder of Advanced Weapons Technology, Dr. Daniel Sherman, reports that "agencies are always looking for a humane capturing system for in-the-field work. Under the hostile conditions of the North Pole a system that allowed rapid capture without harm to the birds was an absolute essential."
The Super Talon Animal Catching Kit shoots a 16 square foot net of high tensile nylon at over 22 feet per second towards the subject- - in a moment the animal is encased in the net and surrenders without stress or injury.
Besides the technology features and specifications of the Talon, its quick launch a reload system gives the scientist the opportunity of minimizing the time needed to handle and tag the birds. "We've been addressing the needs of field personnel for some time now and when you can easily net a bird, dog, cat or other small wildlife at a distance it creates a better experience for the animal and the animal control operator" states Dr. Sherman.
Dr. Sherman happily explains the new association with the Arctic researchers, "We are very proud to help with the research the International Polar Year Initiative is doing for climate change. Their commitment to the environment and wildlife is inspiring and we are very glad that the Talon plays an important role in their research."
