The awareness level class we offer focuses on key concepts that build on the cornerstones of Law Enforcement training, as well as concepts that may be counterintuitive. The topics we introduce are designed to spur thought, interest, and enthusiasm in dealing with Large Animal Response. We do this by discussing the animals’ behavior, their responses to the actions taken by rescuers, general, and critical concepts such as immediately available containment, principals regarding management of loose large animals, unique issues in Large Animal Rescue as they relate to incidents that have direct public
safety concerns, and euthanasia concepts and techniques that directly focus on the service weapons carried by many Law Enforcement agencies. The overarching theme of the talk is safety for our personnel, the public, and the animals we are trying to help.
The training is accomplished in two sections: a PowerPoint lecture and a hands-on portion with 800-pound articulated training mannequins and examinations of large animal skulls as related to euthanasia. The PowerPoint section is about 1.5 hours in duration, with one hour of hands-on activities. This class is not limited in the number of officers that can participate, but 15-40 individuals are optimal.
