Rescue Glide Project
Glides are now standard choices for rescue teams for the movement of recumbent large animals. They provide welfare driven options which allow quick transfer of an animal to more suitable areas to promote recovery.
Developments have included the means to tow glides from both the side and the end, join sheets together and incorporate lifting strops to support animals being skidded up inclines through providing hard protection from damaging surfaces.
Current development is to create a packaging system to contain anaesthetised animals for longer duration travel and to hold the animal securely for transfer across undulating ground.
