To date the immobilisation of wild boars (Sus scrofa) was always associated with significant difficulties. A wide range of anaesthetic combinations has been used in the past. All combinations had major drawbacks. This paper describes the immobilisation of 17 wild boars with a tiletamine-zolazepam combination. Tiletamine-zolazepam in a dose of 3 - 5 mg/kg body weight proved a valuable and safe new method of immobilising wild boars in the field. The very short induction period (4 - 6 minutes) and the high possible concentration of the solution (33%) make this combination ideal for telinjection.
